Snehal A. Ingle*, Minal Khode, Ashish A. Thatere, Jayant D. Gulhane, Dr. Prakash R. Kabra

ABSTRACT

Alopecia areata also known as spot baldness is an autoimmune disease. In alopecia hairs are lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp due to the body‟s failure to recognise it‟s own body cells and subsequent destruction of its own tissue. Use of local corticosteroids either in injection form or topical application along with topical irritants like anthralin or topical coal tar is highlighted. Minoxidil had also been known to be restricting in hair loss and promoting hair regrowth. Indralupta (Alopecia) manifests due to vitiated Pitta and Vata of Romakupa (Hair Follicle) resulting in local hair loss. In advanced stage of Indralupta further obstruction of the path of hair follicles by vitiated Kapha and Rakta restricting in hair growth (S.N. 13/33-34). He further described the treatment of Indralupta by applying the concept of Siravedha (Blood Letting) followed by Snehan (oleation) and Swedan (Fomentation) (S.C. 20/24). A 50 years female with Indralupta since > one year on scalp region came to us for treatment. Considering the role of Raktamokshana (Blood Letting) this patient was taken for multiple settings of Jalaukavacharana. (Leech Therapy) alongwith local application of Jaypal in Dhanyak Svaras for seven days followed by Gomutra in Narikel Tail was applied. Outstanding results were achieved after one month of this treatment that can be assessed by photographs of this patient. Results and discussion will be presented in full paper.

Keywords: Alopecia, Indralupt, Jalaukavacharana, Siravedha.
