Diagnosis of Krumi on the Basis of Sanjat Krumi Lakshana: A Case Report

  • Sachin Praksh Gwalani

Abstract

Worm infestation is the most common pediatric complaint which results in various health issues in children. Vedic literature also approves the presence of Krumi in children. Due to the resemblance of meaning and clinical features, worm infestation is commonly correlated with the Pureeshaja Krumi, which is one of the three types of internal Krumi. Ayurveda also gives common clinical features of Krumi which includes fever, pain in abdomen, skin discoloration, nausea, aversion to food, loose motions and giddiness, etc. This group of symptoms is not correlated with any clinical condition yet.  Hence an effort is made here to present a case of Krumi with the classical features of common manifestations.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Infections, Krumi, Worm
