Abstract: Introduction- Diseases of the digestive system constitute a significant role in increasing the disease burden in society. Grahani Roga (Disorder of gastro-intestinal tract especially duodenum and lower G.I Tract), according to Ayurveda, is a disease related to gastrointestinal disorders. Observation- A clinically diagnosed male patient with Crohn's disease 20 years old. The signs and symptoms of Crohn’s disease are like the manifestations of Grahani Roga, as explained in Ayurveda texts. Most of the symptoms of Grahani Roga, as mentioned in Ayurveda, resemble Crohn’s Disease. These include loss of appetite, fever, weight loss, diarrhea, depression. So, there can be a correlation between the two conditions. To provide practical insights into the therapeutic concepts of Ayurveda, a diagnosed case of Crohn’s Disease in a preview of Grahani Roga is discussed in this article. The condition was managed with the help of holistic Herbal and Herbo-mineral compounds mentioned in authentic Ayurveda texts. In this Case Study, treatment given to the patient consisted of a combination of herbs like Kutaj, Bilwa, Darvi, Kamdudha, Vidangadi, Pachak, and Rasasindur with Anupan (co-administer of medicine) of Ghee. Classical Herbo-mineral compounds like Kutajghan vati, Shankh vati, Suwarnmalini Vasant and Panchamrut parpati play an essential role in the treatment plan. According to Ayurveda, it is concluded that there is a correlation between the signs and symptoms of Crohn’s Disease and Grahani Roga. Nidan Parivarjana, Pathya- Apathya also play a vital role in Grahani Roga.
