Abstract

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and ulcers of the Large intestine. It is one of the most common GI disorder. Usually the pain affects only the intestinal mucosa and sub mucosa, causing small ulcers in the intestinal lining called ulcers. In most of patients, the disease begins from the anus and continues to spread. Its pathogenesis is multi factorial and includes genetic predisposition, epithelial barrier defects, dys regulated immunity, and environmental factors. It can affect the entire intestines. Inflammation causes the intestine to move rapidly and cause discomfort. Bacteria can cause bleeding, discharge of mucus and pus, and symptoms. The aim of medical treatment is firstly to promote rapid treatment and normalize biomarkers and secondly to achieve endoscopic normalization to control the treatment and prevent disability for a long time. Medications such as aminosalicylates, steroids, antibiotics, biological therapy and in severe cases surgery are required.
A 26-year-old woman from Ahmedabad, Gujarat, suffered from sa-ama malapravriti (5 times a day), sa-bala with mala, Bhaya-shoka kale uarah gauravata, niyamita purva apeksha alpa artava slava.
