Psoriasis is one of the commonest non infective inflammatory skin disease characterized by raised silvery scaly lesions. Lesions most commonly are seen on elbow, knee and lower back. In Ayurveda this disorder may be correlated with Mandai Kushtha, a type ofMahakushtha described by Charaka. In the present case report, a 31years old female presented with history of scaly pink patches on elbow, forehand, knee, lower limb, back and abdomen. Patient complained of itching and pin pointed bleeding points (Aupitz’s sign). As Ayurveda advocates Shodhan (purificatory) and Shamana (palliative) measures for its prevention as well as curative aspect, the patient was treated by Vamana as Shodhana chikitsa and internal ayurvedic medication. (Abhyantar/Shamana chikitsa).
