Effect of Ayurvedic medicines in the management of acute recurrent pancreatitis: A case report

This case report presents the treatment outcome of a 9-year-old diagnosed case of acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP). The patient has suffered recurrent severe abdominal pain, vomiting, and constipation for the past 3 years. The high amylase and lipase levels in the serum, ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography findings confirmed the diagnosis of ARP. The patient regularly took allopathic medicines, yet she had recurrent abdominal pain episodes that required hospitalization. The patient was treated with Ayurveda medicines, including Kamadudha Rasa (Mukta Yukta), Agnitundi Vati (twice daily before meals), and Nityam tablet at bedtime for 3 weeks. In the third week, the treatment was modified by replacing Agnitundi Vati with Kravyad Rasa and Kankayana Vati. The 8-month continued therapy resulted in complete clinical recovery. No adverse reactions or untoward effects due to Ayurveda interventions were reported during the treatment. There was no recurrence after a 90-day follow-up. Based on the results obtained in this case study, a clinical trial on Ayurvedic management of ARP may be planned to prove the efficacy of Ayurveda treatment regimen in treating ARP empirically.
