*Dr. Santosh L. Bagad and Dr. Vikas B. Jaybhay

ABSTRACT

The worm infection or helminthiasis is one among the foremost common problems in pediatric practices especially in developing countries because of the poor hygiene. The parasitic infection seen in children are Ascaris lumbricoides (Round worm), Enterobiasis vermicularis (Pin worm), Ancyclostoma duodenale (Hook worm), Echinocuccus granulosis (Hydatid diseases) and Cystercosis. Among which the most common worm infection in children is Ascaris lumbricoides. Helminthiasis has been found to lead to poor cognitive development, poor school and work performance, poor socioeconomic development, and poverty. Chronic illness, malnutrition, and anemia are further manifestations of secondary effects of helminthiasis. In ayurveda worm infection is described as Krimi Roga. In modern sciences the term Krimi is often correlated with helminthiasis. Excessive intake of madhura & amla rasa, eating during indigestion, lack of exercise and resorting to day sleep are the main etiological factors mentioned in Ayurveda. Main symptom of Krimiroga is Jwara (fever), Vivarnata (discoloration of skin), Shula (Pain), Hridaroga (Heart diseases), Sadanam (lassitude), Bhaktadvesha (Anorexia), Atisara (Diarrhea), Vamana (Vomiting). Ayurveda puts three basic approaches for the treatment of Helminthiasis disease like Apakarsana (Removal of visible worm from the body), Prakriti Vighata (to create unfavorable environment by means of diet and medicine) and Nidana Parivarjana (Avoid etiological factor).

Keywords: Krimi Roga, Intestinal worms, Helminthiasis, Worm Infestations.
