Abstract

A venous ulcer is the common and recurrent form of leg ulcers encountered in general practice. Its improper care can cause gangrene and may require amputation of the affected limb. Conventional treatment though is effective but requires surgical intervention and not always affordable. The venous ulcer has resemblance with Sirajanyadushta Vrana in Ayurveda for which a range of treatment modalities stated. A 38-years-old male presented with two non-healing ulcers of one-year duration at the medial malleolus of right leg resulted from venous stasis undergone allopathic treatment without any significant improvement. Significant healing in wound observed after 8 weeks of comprehensive Ayurvedic modalities consisting of internal use of Guggulu Tikthaka Kashayam, Sahacharadi Kashayam, Kanchanar Guggulu and Kaishore Guggulu and topical use of Jatyadi Taila. No recurrence of wound also observed after 18 weeks of follow-up.
