Ayurvedic management of Ekakushta in Kaumarbhritya: A single case study

Author(s):

Nikita S Korade and Karuna Ratnaparkhi

Abstract:

Eka Kushta is a form of Kshudra Kushta that resembles psoriasis in its clinical presentations and is primarily caused by an imbalance of the Vata and Kapha Doshas. Round plaques covered in silvery scales and erythematous, clearly delineated papules are the clinical features of psoriasis, an immune-mediated illness. The elbows, scalp, knees, and gluteal cleft are the most often affected locations. Ayurveda describes a number of therapy methods, including Shamana and Shodana, for managing Eka kushta. As a result, in the current case study, an 10 -year-old boy who presented to the Kaumarabhritya Out Patient Department with elbow, knee, hand, and foot symptoms of Eka kushta was treated with internal medication (Shamana chikitsa) and Shodana chikitsa(virechana).
