Palmistry, the HAST SAMUDRIKA is a part of science, known as SAMUDRIKA SHASTRA. This science forecasts a person’s future by observing his hand geometry and palm prints. Medical Palmistry, the major branch of Palmistry facilitates the diagnosis of diseases on keenly focusing one’s palm. The texture, shape and color of palm and nails are reflecting the health condition of a person. The positions of lines, mounts and some special symbols are exhibiting several medical features of internal organs of human body and thus lead to diagnose various diseases. In this survey, we bring the collective ideas of the research works that attempt to analyze different dimensions of Medical Palmistry. We have examined the works under five different categories of diseases based on the nature and outcome of the works of palm morphology.
