Acute pancreatitis is the sudden inflammation of the pancreas and is histologically characterized by acinar cell destruction of pancreas that may be mild or life threatening. A 40-year alcoholic male patient complained of mild pain in abdomen associated with nausea and vomiting reported in OPD. CT findings suggestive of acute pancreatitis with mild ascites and bilateral pleural effusion (modified CT severity index is 6) with high serum amylase concentrations. Due to resemblance of the chief complaints of patient with the symptoms of Pittaja Gulma, he was treated on the principle of Pittaja Gulma. After 7 days of treatment with Ayurvedic medicines, serum marker returns to its normal range and ultrasonography showed there is no abnormal finding. The effectiveness of the therapy has been found satisfactory and the improvements in clinical as well as laboratory findings are found statistically significant (p< 0.001).
