Kamala is described under Raktavaha Srotas & Yakrit-pliha is the mula sthan of Raktavaha Srotas. Acharya Charaka said that Kamala is next stage of pandu mainly cause due to frequently consumption of Ushna (hot), Tikshna (spicy) food i.e. Pittaprakopak Ahara (increasing level of Pitta) but Sushruta and Vagbhata have accepted Kamala (Jaundice) not only as one of the complications of Pandu Roga (Aneamia) but also in association of other diseases. Due to these factors vitiation of Pitta (bile), Rakta (blood) and Mamsa (muscles) Dhatu occurs. Symptoms like yellowish discoloration of skin (Twak pitata), sclera (netra pitata), urine (Mutra pitata), stool (Purisha pitata) etc. are clinical symptoms of Kamala.
