It is an illness where both Vatadosha and Raktadhatu are afflicted by distinct etiological factors like sedentary lifestyle along with mental stress and consumption of unwholesome food1. If the person afflicted with this is neglected, the disease progresses and leads to complications, here is one such case of complication3, suffering from DushtaVrana due to both Uthana and Gambheera stage of Vatarakta2.
