LOOTHA VISHA: A CASE REPORT

*Dr. Sunitha G. and Dr. Gazala Hussain

ABSTRACT

There are more than 40,000 species of spiders and most of them are venomous. Agada Tantra has a simplified approach towards loothas (spiders) and has included the classification, clinical features (general and specific) and its treatment (general and specific) protocol. Acharya Suhsruta described Lootha Visha under Jangama Visha and explained 16 types of lootha. A patient approached to Out Patient Department of SDM College of Ayurveda and Hospital with chief complaints of whitish blisters in the neck and chest region associated with oedema and itching. He also felt burning sensation at the site of bite. There was a mild rise of temperature. On analysing it was identified as sharp spider poisoning symptom. Patient was treated with Dasanga lepa, Patola katurohinyadi kashayam, Bilvadi gutika and Ushirasava. A remarkable improvement in the condition was observed in a span of 7 days. In this article an attempt is made to conceptualize spider envenomation according to Ayurveda with a case report.

Keywords: Lootha visha, Dasanga lepa, Patola katurohinyadi kashayam, Bilvadi gutika, ushirasa.
