Dr. Shobha C. M.* and Dr. Hamsaveni

ABSTRACT

Krimi Granthi is one of the most common ocular disorders encountered in the clinical practice. It is explained under sandhigata netrarogas (Junction between two ocular structures) which is kapha pradhana and mainly affects pakshama vartma sandhi (junction of eye lashes and lid) associated with lakshanas like Kandu (Itching), Osha (Burning sensation), Pakshmapota ( Cracking of skin/ ulcer) , Pooyasrava (Pus discharge) and Granthi (Cystic swelling) which are similar to that of Blepharitis. It is often misdiagnosed because of co-morbidity with other ocular surface disease like dry eye disease and allergic conjunctivitis. Blepharitis may lead to complications if not treated properly at times. Ayurvedic treatment modalities specially indicated in Krimi granthi are swedana (fomentation), bedhana (incision) and pratisarana (local rubbing). Objectives are to evaluate the efficacy of darvi seka and Ela churna Pratisarana after darvi seka in the management of Krimi Granthi w.s.r. to Blepharitis. An observational study has been conducted on patients (n=10) of Shalakyatantra outpatient department of SKAMC, Bangalore to evaluate the efficacy of Ela churna pratisarana after Darvi Seka in the management of Krimi Granthi. The present study has come out with promising results in the reduction of signs and symptoms of anterior Blepharitis. However a clinical trial on large sample with long duration of follow up is necessary to establish the efficacy of Pratisarana as a procedure of choice and to analysis the recurrence rate after treatment.
