Case presentation: A 35 year old male patient visited OPD with complaints of protrusion of mass outside the anal region, constipation and pain during defecation. Routine clinical examinations and investigations are done. Diagnosis and management: Based on clinical examination, the case was diagnosed as thrombosed haemorrhoids and suggested for Jalaukavacharana on an OPD basis. The treatment aims to relieve the pain and reduce the inflammation. Outcome: There is marked improvement in thrombosed haemorrhoids. The inflammation is reduced with relief from pain. Discussion: Satisfactory results were obtained with a decrease in the size of haemorrhoids and relief from pain. This case highlights that Jalaukavacharana is a very effective treatment for thrombosed haemorrhoids.
