ABSTRACT

Introduction:-Ayurveda have explained Kushtha vyadhi (skin disorders) under Aupasargikavyadhi (communicable diseases) & classified it as Kshudrakushtha & Mahakushtha. Kshudrakushtha shows likely similarity to common skin diseases & Mahakushtha shows similarity to the Leprosy. As per modern science, Leprosy is a contagious & communicable disease. Skin biopsy is one of the diagnostic measures for it. The study was designed to find the relation between dhatugatavastha of Kushtha and the types of Leprosy, giving prime importance to histopathological study of the skin biopsy. Materials and methods-The study is observational study. Total 40 patients diagnosed as leprosy, at the leprosy centre, Sasson general hospital, Pune were selected for the study. Each patient was examined clinically using the special case record format designed for the study for the clinical diagnosis of kustha & its dhatugatavastha. Informed written consent was obtained from patients. Histopathological study of the skin biopsy was done. The comparative study was done on the basis of the data obtained from the clinical parameters & reports of the histopathological studies. Observations: The incidence of occurrence of Mahakushtha (Leprosy) is observed more in males in the age group of 16-45 years, with poor socio-economical strata. The maximum densities of VataKaphajaprakruti patients are observed more suffering from Mahakushtha. The higher prevalence of involvement of medogatadhatuavastha and mamsagatavastha of kushtha is observed. Tuberculoid leprosy is observed in 50% patients while lepromatous leprosy in 40% patients. Conclusions: On the basis of the data obtained from present study the following conclusions are drawn. The involvement of mamsagatavastha and medogatavastha in kushtha get reported in most of the patients in the late stages. The incidence of lepromatous leprosy is common in mamsagatavastha and of the tuberculoid type is common in the medogatavastha. Skin Biopsy plays a major role in the accurate diagnosis and classification of mahakushtha.

Considering the severity of the disease and finding no other authorized alternative for its eradication, attempts were made to find out suitable treatment. The concept of urinary disorders in Ayurveda is depicted in great details. On account of its vivid references and properties, Shilajitvadi vati has been selected to be studied on scientific lines. To achieve the above aim two types of Shilajitvadi vati was prepared; with gold and without gold. According to Ayurvedic Pharmacology this formulation has a definite role in treating the various types of urinary disorders. The trial has been done on 30 patients 10 of which served as control. The diagnosis and assessment of effect of drug has been based on clinical and sonographical parameters. Patients of Group A were given Shilajitvadi vati with gold where as Group B patients were given Shilajitvadi vati without gold. As a result of treatment the patients gradually improved and over all improvement was 72% in Group A, which is highly significant statistically. In Group B patients it is 54.54%, only significant. In Group C, there was no improvement. The decrease in size and weight is also seen in the trial. There is no effect on amount of residual urine. Therefore on the basis of this trial it can be said that this drug is helpful in returning the normal physiological status of the bladder thus relieving the symptoms.
