ABSTRACT

a) Introduction: Psoriasis is a non-infectious, chronic inflammatory disease of the skin, characterized by well-defined erythematous plaques with silvery scale, with a predilection for the extensor surfaces and scalp, and a chronic fluctuating course. The disease is tallied with Ekakushta, one among the Kshudra Kushta explained in the ayurvedic literature, b) Case Presentation: A male patient aged 40 years came with c/o scaly skin lesions along with itching and powdery flakes all over the body especially in the extensor surface of both upper limb and lower limb and upon the trunk. On clinical examination and investigations, the diagnosis was confirmed as Psoriasis/ Ekakushta. c) Management and Outcome: He was given Kramataha Virechana Karma followed by the administration of Tuvaraka Rasayana after the samsarjana krama. The extend of the skin lesions reduced and improvement in the condition and was assessed by the PASI Score. d) Discussion: The treatment of kushta involves shodhana and shamana revolving around the concept of Vyadhihara Rasayana.
