Karshya is the most wide spreading health and nutritional problem in developing countries. Protein energy malnutrition is a possible condition which may be correlated with Karshya. The present study was undertaken to find out the effect of Vidarikandadi Vati and Kshirabala Taila Basti in the management of Karshya in children. Thirty patients were studied and randomly divided into two groups namely Group-A and Group-B. Group-A received Vidarikandadi Vati and Group-B received Kshirabala Taila Basti. Effect of drugs was observed at the end of thirty days. In group-A, 13.33% patients showed moderate improvement and 86.67% patients showed mild improvement, marked improvement was not found in this group. In group-B marked, moderate and mild improvement was observed in 13.33%, 73.33% and 13.33% respectively. It was concluded that Kshirabala Taila Basti is useful for the management of Karshya in children when compared to Vidarikandadi Vati.
