Bhagandara is a disease which is pertaining to anorectal region and it is the 2nd highest prevalent disease among the anorectal diseases. Acharya Sushruta considered it as one among the Ashtamahagadas. There is a wide description of its etiology, pathogenesis, its various types, various modality of treatment and its Sadyasadyata, Pathya and Apathya are available in various classical texts. The Ayurveda classics have explained different types of Bhagandara and its Chikitsa which includes medical, para-surgical and surgical management. The modern medical system treats the condition using seton technique or surgery. The Ksharasootra method explained in Ayurveda Samhitas believed to have more efficacy than the seton technique. The incidence of fistula in ano is increasing gradually irrespective of age and sex. It affects the day to day life of the patients with its severity in presentation. Here a case study is being discussed in which the patient suffered from multiple fistula in ano and was treated with Teekshna Apamarga Ksharasootra along with internal medications and the complaints got cured completely in 6 months of period without remaining a scar mark.
