Mala Pariksha (stool examination) has been emphasized as important examination tool after the era of Acharya Yogaratnakara. Before that, in Samhita Kala, characteristic of stool has mentioned in scattered manner in the symptomatology of various diseases. In clinical practice, the importance of Mala Pariksha has been declined day by day due to the easy availability of other examination tool. But in pediatric age group it is still holding the key role in the way of diagnosis. History taking doesn’t have much importance in Balaroga (pediatrics). Because Pediatric group cannot complain their pain and discomfort and examiner should gather the information by observation and examination only. So in this paper an attempt has been made to correlate the various stool characteristics with condition of the baby.
