Abstract: Grahani roga has been a challenge owing to its preponderance in the present lifestyle conditions where the dietary practice has gone completely out of sync. Grahani roga simulates Irritable Bowel Syndrome considering its cardinal features. It is prevalent among 10-20% of adults and adolescents, predominantly in females. Despite extensive research, an effective treatment and prevention strategy has not been developed due to its heterogenous etiopathogenesis. In this paper, neurological etiopathogenesis and pathophysiology of grahani roga is elaborated. Pathophysiology of Samana vata with respect to the Auerbach’s plexus and Vyana vata with respect to Meissner’s plexus of the enteric nervous system, in etiopathogenesis of grahani roga has been elucidated. Ghrita is considered as the probable mode of treatment due to its Vatahara and Agnideepaka properties.
