*Sumeet Saini and Ashvini Kumar M.

Abstract

Introduction: Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a systemic, nongranulomatous, small vessel vasculitis with multiorgan involvement that is self-limited. Present case is of a Girl aged 13 years suffering from small vessel vasculitis from the last 10 days. Main Clinical findings: The patient had bright red palpable purpura with petechiae on bilateral lower limb and lateral aspects of bilateral arm. In the last 10 days’ patient had taken alloptahic treatment but lesions did not respond well to the current treatment so the patient approached for Ayurvedic treatment. Diagnosis: The Ayurvedic diagnosis of the case was established as Raktapradosja vikara. Interventions: Patient was treated with Sarvanga Abhyanga (whole body massage) followed by Parisheka (sluicing using mug) with Aragavadha Patra Kashayam for 9 days. Rose petal Ksheer niruha basti (enema with decoction) with Mahatiktak Ghrita (Ghee) Anuvasana basti (enema with ghee) for nine days in Kala basti karma (nine days’ order of enema) was administered. The Ayurvedic oral drugs Laghu Sutshekar rasa 500mg, Kamdugdha Mukta 500mg, Avipattikar Churna(100gm) along with Praval Bhasma(10gm) mixed together and given in dose of 3gm twice with honey before food, Sarivadiasava 15ml with equal lukewarm water twice a day. Nalpamaradi taila for external application was given for 15 days during the follow up period. Outcomes: Skin lesions were completely resolved during the course of treatment and there was no relapse during the follow up period of 15 days. Conclusions: The case study demonstrate that HSP can be successfully treated with Panchakarma procedures and Ayurvedic drugs.
