Karshya is an apatarpanjanya disease, majorly found in medokshayaj people due to protein energy deficiency or asatmyaj ahara vihara. Acharya Charak has mentioned karshya in ashtauninditiya purush vyadhi. Kshudhamandya, pipasa asahatva, nidrakshaya, shushka sphik - udara are the main clinical features which can be measured using anthropometry measurements like skinfold thickness, mid arm circumference, BMI, height, weight. Specific treatment like til taila abhyanga and changes in ahara and vihara pattern can overcome karshya and prevent diseases like pliha disorders, vrikka disorders. A systematic study of these conditions represents different aspects of karshya and proper understanding of pathogenesis of conditions provide a valuable key for effective management.

Keywords: Karshya, Ahara, Vihar, pathya, Krodha, shoka, chinta, bhaya.
