Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic, relapsing dermatological disorder characterized by the presence of pink to erythematous plaques with overlying silver hyperkeratotic plaques, distributed on the scalp, postauricular skin, elbows, gluteal cleft etc. Plaque psoriasis is one among the common variety of psoriasis. Though it is manageable with difficulty, its relapsing nature remains a threat to the present management strategies. On the contrary in Ayurveda, a thorough analysis of condition, purification, rasayana and samana medicines proves to be effective in such conditions. A single case report of 42 year old male consulted in the Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda College OPD with presenting complaints as dry itchy and scaly silvery white lesions on chest, lower back, scalp and beard upon reddish patches with duration of two years. He was allergic to dantappala (Wrightia tinctoria) also. On examination the case was having positive candle grease and Auspitz sign with PASI score as 20.8 and DLQI as 21. The case was doignosed as ekakushta associated with severe pitta dushti and poor satva bala. The Doosheevisha chikitsa along with snehapana, svedana, vamana, virechana, takradhara, Shashtika annalepa and rasayana was done with proper medicines. The condition of the patient improved considerably by reducing the symptoms like erythema, dryness, itching, scaling and pain. The PASI score reduced to 2.3 and DLQI reduced to almost zero at the time of discharge. The further follow up has not reported any recurrence of the disease since two years.The proper understanding of the pathology through dasa vidha pareeksha and tracing out the vishaja nidanas can lead to a proper treatment plan. This will give successful management of similar conditions along with the enhancement of immunity to prevent or reduce the recurrence of the disease through principles of Agadatantra.
