Abstract

Bhagandara (Fistula in ano) is a common anorectal condition prevalent world wide, and its prevalence is second highest after Arshas (Haemorrhoids). Kshara Karma is a one of the parasurgical procedure in Ayurveda. In this study Palasha Kshara Sutra is used in Bhagandara (Fistula-in-ano). Though, Apamarga Kshara Sutra is highly effective in the management of Fistula-in-ano. But pain, irritation, difficulty in preparation has limited its use. Thus, various type of Kshara Sutra tried with their efficacy in different angle. In this present study effort will be made to define the probable mode of action of Palasha Kshara Sutra prepared in Arka Ksheera in Fistula-in-Ano. This is equally effective with less pain and easy to prepare because a single plant is enough and not a seasonal plant. A 56 yr old male presented with complaints of painful swelling with pus discharge in the anal region since 1 week has been presented here.
