Abstract

Alopecia areata is a non-scarring autoimmune disease of the hair follicle that can present at any age. The condition affects children and young adults who present with discoid areas of non-ciatrical alopecia with exclamation mark at periphery. The common sites are scalp, eye lashes and eye brows. Alopecia areata can be cause of psychological stress individuals with it may experience social phobia, anxiety and depression. In modern medicine topical or injected corticosteroids are used to treat this condition. Due to side effects and limitations of the contemporary science, some harmless and effective medicines are expected from alternative medical science. In Ayurveda it can be correlated to Indralupta one of the kshudra roga. In the present case study, a case of a patient presented with patches of baldness on head since six months was successfully treated with 3 sittings of Jalaukavacharana (leech therapy) for one and a half months and 3 months Ayurveda medication. It provides a promising result in the patient of Indralupta through Jaloukavacharana and Shamana Aushadhi. It can be a choice of treatment, keeping in minds its cost‑effectiveness and successful management as compared to conservative treatment.

Keywords: Indralupta, Jaloukavacharana, kshudra roga, leech therapy, Alopecia areata
