Abstract

Bone marrow edema is the inflammation of the bone marrow that may occur
secondary to a trauma of the bone or other nearby tissues. Bone marrow edema of the talus bone
is a rare cause of pain in feet. No specific treatment is available for this condition till date. As
per Ayurveda, if Asthi gata vidradhi is not treated appropriately it may leads to Majja –paak
(inflammation of bone marrow). In the present study the case of bone marrow edema of talus bone
was treated by Raktamokshana (Leech Therapy).This case study reveals importance of the age
old treatment methodology of Ayurveda that one should ascertain the progression of the disease
first and then only treatment must be planned

Key words: Ayurveda, Bone marrow edema, Leech therapy Raktamokshana, Majja-paak, Asthigata vidradhi
