Clinical efficacy of Thumari gel in the management of superficial non healing leg ulcers- A rare case report.
Ulcers in lower extremity are generally caused by venous insufficiency, arterial insufficiency, and diabetic neuropathy. Inflammatory ulcers are also difficult to diagnose because of underlying pathophysiology rests on inflammation and immunologic phenomena. Definitive diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment approach are needed to manage lower extremity ulcers. These ulcers may hamper the quality of life of patient. Here we reported a new case of post fracture of shaft of right tibia bone, presented with painful, hypertrophied, irregular shaped ulcer on anterior aspect of tibia gradually developing since 3 months. A male patient of 45 years old consulted to OPD with above complaint that was unable to bear weight on the effected leg (right limb). This case was managed with a local application of Thumari Gel and ulcers were almost healed within 6 weeks of wound care along with internal use of Ayurveda medicines. This case concluded that regular local application of Thumari Gel helpful in healing of chronic ulcer.
