Abstract

A carbuncle is a cluster of boils caused by bacterial infection with deep subcutaneous tissue involvement which can lead to complications like sepsis and even death. Conditions like diabetes mellitus may make the patient more vulnerable to this disease condition. As described in classical Ayuvedic texts, Prameha Pidaka is caused due to medo dushti and tridoshah kopa. This is a case study of vidradhika pidaka on right calf region in a female patient, with a history of Type 2 diabetes mellitus for 14 years, who was effectively managed with Ayurvedic treatment- Pramehahara drugs inernally and externally patana and visravana followed by vranahara chikitsa. The chronic disease got relief with 45 days of ayurvedic treatment.
