Abstract

A 36 year old female patient came to P. D. Patel Ayurvedic Hospital, Nadiad with confirmed diagnosis of Intra Cranial Hypertension (IIH). The patient presented with chief complaint of headache (more over left side), transient vision loss and ear ache. Clinical findings showed bilateral papilloeodema (Lt>Rt). MRI showed possibilities of Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. The menometry showed the pressure of CSF-360 mm of water. After clinical evaluation Ayurvedic treatment was started and significant improvement was seen. The treatment during the hospitalization of one month included Sarvanga Abhyanga, Sarvanga Swedana, Niruha Basti, Marsha Nasya and oral medication. Later on after 19 days Shirodhara was started. During the stay patient was followed up for papilloeodema. As a result of the treatment the severity of the headache was decreased and papilloeodema started resolving. The menometry showed significant reduction in the pressure of CSF. The medicines were continued after discharge.
