Nikumbh M. B.* and Belkhude U. M.

ABSTRACT

Rickets is a bone disease where bones soften and becomes prone to fracture and deformity in children. It is caused by deficiency of vitamin D, Calcium or phosphate. The mineralization defects can be differentiated as rickets caused by calcium deficiency called as calcipenic rickets (hypocalcemic) and phosphate deficiency called as phosphopenic rickets (hypophosphatemic). In this disease, softening and weakening of the bones is seen and it is most commonly found in children 6 – 24 months of age. Poor mineralization of calcium and phosphate shows various bony anomalies in Rickets. In Ayurveda, the symptoms of rickets are similar to that of Phakka vyadhi. Phakka Roga has been described by Acharya Kashyapa. Various Ayurvedic therapies are given in Kashyapa Samhita which are used in the treatment of Phakka Roga.

Keywords: Rickets, Childhood, Mineralization, Calcipenic, Phosphopenic, Phakka Roga, Acharya Kashyapa, Kashyapa Samhita.
