Abstract

Gouty Arthritis has now become a common disease condition which we deal in Ayurveda, but a proper treatment protocol is not followed in many cases. The case reported here was as a result of improper diet and lack of exercise which resulted in an increase serum uric acid level and joint inflammation. The treatment was given at IPD level diagnosing it as Gambhira Vatarakta with valid Chikitsa Siddhanta. This case report provides us a guidelines that even a chronic gouty arthritis with a very high serum uric acid can be treated as per Vataraktha Chikitsa Sidhanthas  in Ayurveda.
