A CASE REPORT ON GUGGULU BASED KSHARSUTRA ALONG WITH SAPTAVINSHATI GUGGULU IN TREATMENT OF BHAGANDARA (FISTULA-IN-ANO)
Bhagandara is one of the commonest diseases which occur in anorectal region. Acharya Sushruta had described this disease in Ashtamahagada that means disease difficult to cure. It starts as deep rooted Pidika around the Guda within two Angula or finger circumference and form into a track with an external opening in the skin of perianal region and an internal opening in the mucosa of anal canal or rectum lined by unhealthy granulation tissue and fibrous tissue which in modern science can be correlated to Fistula-in-ano. As the recurrence rate of fistula in ano is high after modern treatment. To overcome these difficulties, the concept of Ksharsutra mentioned in the classics is very beneficial from the treatment point of view. So, the Guggulu (Commiphora mukul) based Ksharsutra therapy along with oral Ayurvedic formulations is taken to prove its efficacy in treating Bhagandara. Here a case report of a 32 year old, male patient having history of Bhagandara (Fistula-in-ano) since last 2 years is discussed. He had complaints of left gluteal swelling, pain, pus discharge from perianal region and itching around anal region.
