Dr. Samiksha Bhalerao*, Dr. Anil B. Kale and Dr. Divya Kamalkar

Abstract

Alopecia areata is also known as spot baldness. It is a common autoimmune skin disease causing hair loss on the scalp, face and sometimes on other areas of the body.[1] Alopecia can be the cause of psychological stress, individuals with it may experience social phobia, anxiety and depression.[2] In modern medicine topical or injected corticosteroids are used to treat this condition. In Ayurveda it can be correlated to Khālitya one of the kṣhudra roga.[3] Vāta, Pitta, Kapha and Rakta are involved in Khālitya as mentioned in the texts.[4] In the present case study, a case of Alopecia areata was managed with Ayurvedic medicine. Patient presented with patches of baldness on head (occipital area) since 2 month. Patient was treated with some external and internal ayrvedic medication. Regrowth of hairs was achieved completely. This case study reveals the potential of Ayurvedic management of Alopecia areata and may form a basis for further detailed study of the subject.
