Abstract

Aplastic anaemia (AA) was first described by Ehrlich in 1888. It is characterized by peripheral blood pancytopenia. In the management of severe aplastic anaemia, general measures and supportive care as well as therapy with corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, immune suppressive and lithium have so far failed to prolong the survival in severe aplastic anaemia. A 22-year-old female patient came to government ayurved hospital for further treatment of hyperplastic marrow. She was given first classical Virechana after that Shamana treatment done with Dadimadhya Ghrita, Balchaturbhadra Churna, Trikatu Churna, Samsamani vati, Bhumi Amalki Swarasa, Punarnava Mandura, Vasa Ghanavati and Majja Ghrita. After Panchkarma and Shamana treatment a significant improvement in all symptoms had felt by the lady. Though the hematological parameters were not improved but this case study have enlightened the fact that with ayurvedic principles, aplastic anemia can be managed.

Keywords: Aplastic Anaemia, Pandu, Dadimadhya Ghrita, Bhumi Amalki Swarasa, Punaranava Mandura, Majja Ghrita, Samsamani Vati.
