Abstract Abstract: Pilonidal disease is an infection that occurs beneath the skin in the gluteal cleft just above the anus. It affects 7% of the population. In conventional mode of treatment there are several surgical or non-surgical treatments available but with high recurrence rate and post-surgical complications. Owing to the limited therapeutic efficacy of conventional treatment for PSD, an alternative approach is warranted. In this case, A 25years male patient attended OPD with pricking pain and oozing of foul-smelling discharge from three orifices above anus at sacral region since last 1 year. He had occasional reddish rash in sinus tract region. Based on his clinical symptoms and physical examination we diagnosed the case as Pilonoidal Sinus Disease. After thorough case taking, evaluation and analysis of the case the patient was prescribed Graphites and a marked improvement was noticed. Complain resolved within 1 and a half month and the patient was followed-up for one year with no recurrence. As this is a type of disease condition, where patient suffer due to pain and discomfort affecting his daily life leading, outcome-related to impact on daily living (ORIDL) Scale was used to evaluate the improvement. The MONARCH was used to assess the possible causal attribution.
