Pandu Roga is described elaborately by Bhrihatrayi as well as Laghutrayi as a specific disease with its own pathogenesis and treatment. In Pandu Vyadhi there is predominance of paleness (Pandutva) all over the body due to Rakta-Dhatu Alpata. Due to its similarity, it can be co-related with Anemia in modern science. Anemia is most common blood disorder, affecting about a third of the global population. According to W.H.O globally, anaemia affects 1.62 billion people, which corresponds to 24.8% of the population. The highest prevalence is in preschool-age children (47.4%). The Anemia is a reduced quantity of red blood cells or hemoglobin which, in turn causes pale skin. This article is based on Nidana Panchak of Pandu Roga. The advancement in life-style of human being plays a major role in manifestation of various diseases. Pandu Roga is also one of them. Our faulty dietary habits and unhealthy lifestyle produces Ama and further Agni Dushti, which causes formation of improper Rasa Dhatu which further hampers the Rakta Dhatu formation and leads to Pandu Roga. The detail knowledge of Nidana Panchak of Pandu Roga will help in its diagnosis and management.
