Due to its intricate progress, chronicity and associated severe complications like osteonecrosis, septic arthritis, altered joint mechanics its treatment is a real challenge with the debatable outcomes. In Ayurveda, osteomyelitis is correlated with Dustha Vrana or Asthi-vidradhi. The Vrana more than a week called Dushta Vrana which fail to heal for a long period and result into chronic wound (Dheergha Kalanubandhi Dushta Vrana), such Vrana needs Shodhana (Abhyantara) and Ropana (Bahya) Chikitsa.
