2Background: Pandu is one of the commonlyencountered manifestation which is predominantly due to Pitta vitiating Ahar (Diet) and Vihar (Regimen).Pitta dushti (Vitiation of Pitta) results in Raktadushti (Vitiation of Rakta) and the disorder so produced is known as Panda reflecting paleness (colour like Ketaki flower) of the body. Whereas Anaemia is haemoglobin concentration in blood below the lower limit of the normal range for the age and sex of the individual again resulting in paleness and4t may have any cause .Aim : Assessment of correlation of signs and symptoms of Pandu with Anaemia. Materials: Haemoglobinometer and Case Record Form. Method :A Survey study was done on 100 randomly selected subjects from Ramnagar, Mahadeopura, Nalwadi and Snehal Nagar areas of Wardha city. Results: This data obtained is statistically significant with Chi-Square =9.1 and Degree of freedom=3. p<0.05 and shows that Pandu is significantly more common in the individuals with dominance of Pitta dosha. Conclusion: The correlation of Pandu with Anaemia is incomplete, as the signs and symptoms given in Ayurveda are broader and diverse. However many features of Anaemia are seen in pandu. The diet and regimen should be planned according to the age, profession, requirement and Prakruti along with the classical treatment ofPandu so as to get effective results.
