Though the disease entity can’t be correlated entirely with any Ayurvedic disease entity, treatment can be adopted according to the pathogenesis and involved doshas. A 44 year old male patient, diagnosed with Neurogenic Ptosis and ophthalmoplegia due to acquired Third nerve palsy was treated at Shalakyatantra Inpatient Department of Govt. Ayurveda College, Trivandrum. The patient presented with pain over left eye & Left side of forehead with drooping of left upper lid and double vision since 2 months.
