Pandu Noi is one of the major global diseases in paediatric community. Prevalence is to be higher in children than adults & elder ones. So the authors focus to treat the Pandu Noi. Various literature evidence relevant to pandu noi was collected from both siddha system as well as modern system of medicine. The efficacy of the drugs Dhiratchai Chooranam have been studied and observed. Fourty patients from both sexes of different age group were selected and treated in the OPD and IPD – Kuzhanthai Maruthuvam department of Ayothidoss Pandithar Hospital, National Institute of Siddha. Among the 40 patients 14 were male children and 26 were female children. For admitted IP patients after the discharge further follow up of the cases was done in the outpatient department. Specific investigations and the prognosis of the patient were studied and the proforma was prepared accordingly. Maximum occurrence of this disease is observed in school going children (6 to 12 years) but the others have no exception. A number of drugs are available in the market, which have achieved improved efficacy and safety after incorporating the active agents in carrier systems. Therefore, putting new life into erstwhile discarded drug molecules by transforming them into novel formulations can serve as viable and cost effective alternative to the expensive and time consuming search of newer alternative drugs and therapies in Siddha systems of medicine. .The study on pandu noi is done to find out a complete relief to those affected with a safety drug of simple preparation – Dhiratchai Chooranam. No side effects were reported during or after the course of treatment.
