ABSTRACT

The Shwitra term is combination of Shveta and Rak. Shveta means whiteness and Rak is suffix of ‘Shveta’ Dhatu. The Nirukti of the term reveals white colour or changes toward white colour. Shwitra has been mentioned along with Kushtha but not included in the types of Kushtha. Vagabhata said word Kushtha literally means the disease which disfigures the body. Shwitra is foremost amongst them. The main effect of Shwitra is disfigurement as well as psychological. In the modern dermatology, Shwitra can be correlated with Vitiligo. “Vitiligo is common, acquired, idiopathic discoloration of the skin characterized by well circumscribed, ivory or chalky white coloured macules, which are flush to the skin surface. Vitiligo is characterized by the loss of melanin or skin pigment in various parts of the body. The skin in these areas appears spotted. Vitiligo is not a serious or life-threatening disorder, or a painful one, but it has an impact on the social and psychological well-being of its victims. For present study, we had reported a 28 years old male patient having white coloured paches over right forearm since 6 years. There was no significant past history of any other chronic disorder in patient. The patient is treated with Bakuchi churna 2gm.bid internally and Bakuchi tail for local application for 1 months. Patient reported significant improvement in colour of patches.

Keywords: Shwitra, Kushtha, Bakuchi, Vitiligo.
