ANIL K. TRIPATHI, S. J. GUPTA, S. C. VARSHNEY.

Abstract
Cellulitis is a spreading type of inflammation of subcutaneous tissue. It is very painful
condition. Cellulitis characterized by pain, redness, tenderness, local temperature and fever with chills.
If ignored, it may switch over to an ulcer. This condition is more or less similar to Vranashopha in
Ayurveda in terms of symptoms or pathogenesis. Bloodletting is prime remedy to manage Vranashopha
according to Ayurveda. Leech is a bloodletting device which sucks the blood from affected area. A
clinical and haematological study on 42 patients of cellulitis treated with leech therapy suggests
positive results in terms of efficacy and non toxicity.

Key words: Vranashopha, Bloodletting, Leech therapy, Haematological study.
