Psoriasis is an accelerated inflammatory proliferation of the ailing cells of the skin due to defective immune response triggered by uncertain factors. Although the disease was described centuries ago, the precise cause and management isstill under-research. In Ayurveda, many herbs are effective , but it needs a multimodal treatment approach due to its multifactorial cause.This case is about Ayurveda treatment in a 40-year-old male patient with plaque psoriasis presented with erythematous plaques on the lateral surface of the legs, right forehand, and lower back. The Auspitz sign and Koebner phenomenon were positive. The treatment protocol was adopted as per Ayurvedic samprapti (pathophysiology) and the patient cured completely without reporting any adverse events after the 5 months of treatment. No recurrence observed even after treatment halted. The patient was directed about pathya-apathya and its importance was revalidated. Photographic documentation was recorded with the proper consent of the patient during successive treatment and regular follow-ups. Ayurveda treatment led to speedy and substantial recovery from a chronic case of psoriasis.
