Vitiligo is a big challenge to the modern medical science in today's era. Vitiligo is a disease in which there is progressive hypomelanosis of skin and hair, often familiar and characterised by total absence of melanocytes, microscopically. There is discoloration of the skin and skin and hair colour changes and becomes white due to depigmentation. In Ayurveda Shvitra has been described in the Kushtharoga Adhikara.(Charak Chikitsa Sthan ch. 7, Suahrut Chikitsa Sthan ch. 9) and it is said to be Kashtasadhya to treat the disease Shvitra. Also the basic principles of the treatment of the disease Kushtha and Shvitra are same. Chakrapani has stated that Shodhan is the foremost treatment of Shvitra and while commenting on different Yogas he stated that involvement of Doshas in Tvacha should be considered. After thoroug study it is observed and can be said that Vitiligo may be correlated with Shvitra. According to Ayurveda, Shodhan is the best treatment of Shvitra. Shodhan mainly includes Vaman, Stransan, Lepan. Also Shaman is required followed by Shodhan to cure the disease. After treating the patients of Shvitra with Shodhan in the form of Vaman followed by Shaman treatment it can be said that this treatment is very effective and beneficial for the patients of Shvitra.

Keywords: Shvitra, Panchakarma, Vaman, Vitiligo, Melanocyte.
