Abstract


"To Study The Efficacy Of Kanchanar Guggul In Post Operative  Management Of Lagan."

         In this present era the human life style, habits and environment is dramatically changed. These changes give rise to various eye diseases requiring special attention. The fast food, junk food habits environmental pollution, dust, working habits like heavy computer work, driving vehicles, and also watching T.V. continuously, use of cosmetics and the negligence regarding refractive errors in young generations is more, all that things are hazardous for ophthalmic health given rise to disease like “Lagan” (Chalazion).

“Lagan” is one of the diseases described by Sushruta Acharya under the heading of Vartmagata Vyadhis. Lagan is the “Kolpramano” swelling in eyelid, which is itchy, painless, hard, tense or cystic in nature.

Chalazion is rare and recurrence is common.  The treatment in modern science consists of local antibiotic and hot compression with light massage if the Chalazion does not disappear with the appropriate treatment. The treatment consists of incision and curettage. The recurrence of Chalazion is common.

         Therefore, I thought of treating post operative “Lagan” (chalazion) with ayurvedic medicine. While going through texts. I found references of Kanchanar Guggul as a rogadhikar on Granthi Roga also Kanchanar Guggul as a shothahara, lekhya, vedanahara & vranaropaka, Hence. I have decided to see whether post operative management of chalazion with Kanchanar Guggul will be effective or not.
