Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF PERI-ORBITAL CELLULITIS BY LEECH THERAPY- A CASE STUDY

*Kalmegh M. S.

ABSTRACT

A male child aged 11yrs presented with swelling and localized pain, tenderness, erythema, edema over left eye lids with no any history of trauma or insect bite. He was diagnosed with periorbital cellulitis which is a bacterial infection characterized by acute or chronic diffuse, spreading, edematous non suppurative inflammation of inner layers of the skin namely dermis and subcutaneous. According to Ayurveda this can be correlated with Vranashopha. The modern line of treatment of periorbital cellulitis is antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, vitamins & if condition does not subside surgical interference is required. Acharya Sushruta, Charaka, Vagbhata, Chakradatta has described Raktmokshan for the management of Vranashotha. So patient was treated with Jalaukavacharan, 2 settings each after an interval of 1 day. The complaints gradually subsided after 2 settings. Thus this patient was successfully treated with Jalaukavacharana with no recurrence or any complication.

Keywords: Vranashopha, raktamokshan, periorbital cellulitis.
