Ramesh Shivappa Killedar, Sharmistha Mandal, Pradeep Shahjirao Shindhe.

Foot ulcer is a known complication of Diabetes and 10% of all hospital admissions for diabetes (DM) are primarily for foot care . In DM the normal steps of wound healing are obliterated and hence the inflammatory phase is prolonged causing chronic non healing status .Vimlapana (softening by kneading with fingers) is one among shashtiupakrama (60treatment procedures) explained by Sushruta for the management of Vrana (ulcer). Here we report a case of diabetic foot ulcer in a 49 years male having a left foot heel wound with serous discharge and foul smell since 6 months. The case was
treated through out patient care with oral medication and Vimplapana with Jatyaditaila followed by regular dressing for one month. A 1.5 month procedure resulted in complete wound healing with normal scar formation and restored ability to walk. Vimlapana with Jatyaditaila in the case resulted in enhancing wound healing in diabetes which otherwise is not so common.

Key words: Vimlapana Karma, Jatyadi taila, Diabetic foot ulcer, wound healing
