Psoriasis is a chronic, non-communicable, disabling disease with great negative impact on patients’ quality oflife. Skin lesions are localized or generalized, mostly symmetrical, sharply demarcated, red papules and plaques, and usually covered with white or silver scales. The treatment is usually throughout the life and is aimed at remission. So far, there is no therapy that would give hope for a complete cure of psoriasis. The term Kushtha! described in Ayurved includes nearly all skin disorders. Ekakushtha is one of the Kshudra Kushtha has a close similarity with psoriasis due to its maximum matching of symptoms. This is a case of chronic psoriasis of 10 years. She was treated with Shodhan and Shaman chikitsa and was significantly improved with three months of treatment. This study encourages conducting research in such type of chronic cases to validate the effects of Shodhan and Shaman.
