One of the primary symptoms of the illness that is associated with skin tone and colour is pandutva. The vitiation of Bhrajaka Pitta and Rakta, which are primarily in charge of the body's Prakrita Varna, causes Pandu to arise. The term "Vaivarnaya" has been mentioned in this context by Acharya Charaka. One of the "Varnopalakshita Roga" (diseases marked by a change in colour) that is listed in Ayurveda is Pandu Roga. It is characterised by changes in skin colour to white (Shweta), yellowish (Peeta), greenish (Harita), etc. Given the similarities in the clinical signs and symptoms, the Ayurvedic pandu disease and the anaemia described in Modern Medical Science may be connected.
