Pandu is a disease characterized by pallor of body which strikingly resembles with «SQ»Anaemia«SQ» of modern science. Rakta has been considered as a key factor for the Jeevana1, Varna Prasada2, Ayu3 and Mamsa Pushti2 of the body. Many a times it is seen that Rakta gets vitiated by Doshas, mainly by Pitta dosha as Rakta is Pittavargiya and disease like Pandu appear. In Ayurveda, Pandu is considered as a specific disease with its own pathogenesis and treatment.4 Thus an attempt has been made to study the disease Pandu Roga according to Ayurvedic text in the parlance of Iron Deficiency Anaemia. The commonest type of Anaemia that is met with in practice is Iron Deficiency Anaemia. Iron Deficiency anaemia has potential consequences i. e. IDA reduces the work capacity of individual and entire population and brings serious economic consequences and obstacles to national development. It is the only nutrient deficiency which is also significantly prevalent in virtually all industrialized nations. Children, Adult Male and Females suffer the most form of this malady. Large number of these patients could be easily and cheaply treated with single oral iron preparation those are also available in Ayurvedic Classical book. In modern medicine, there is good treatment for Anaemia with considerable result but that is only for acute deficiencies Anaemias. No significant therapy is there for chronic Anaemia which occurs due to metabolic defects. Ayurveda can provide better management in this area. Total 40 patients were registered in the study and were randomly divided in to two groups. In Group A (HM), 2 tab. of Hansa Mandura was given BD with Anupana of Takra and in Group B (PTK) 40 ml of Phalatrikadi Kwatha with Madhu was given twice a day on empty Stomach. The effects of therapy in both groups were assessed by a specially prepared proforma. The result obtained proved that, Group A (HM) showed better results than Group B (PTK). In Group A, 40% patients were completely cured and 60% were found with Marked Improvement, while in Group B only 7.14% patients got Complete Remission and Marked Improvement was observed in 35.71% patients.
