“The destruction / break / rupture / discontinuity of body tissue / part of body, is called wound.” Infected wounds where bacteria or other microorganism have colonized cause either a delay in wound healing or deterioration of the wound. In Ayurveda such wounds are called as Dushta Vrana and drugs having Shodhan (cleansing) and Ropan (Healing) action are recommended for the management. A 52 years old patient with such infected wound was selected for study and treated with Nimbapatradi Ghrita (medicated clarified butter) for 30 days. Patient was assessed on the basis of parameters such as wound size, discharge, margins, granulation tissue, pain. The observations and results were analysed. It highlights the fact that Nimbapatradi ghrita is effective in management of Dushta vrna.
Keywords: Dushta vrana, Nimbapatradi Ghrita, Infected wound.
