A chronic wound management is a very challenging problem inspite of all modern tools in our hand. Many factors are responsible for non-healing like Diabetes, Hypo-proteinaemia, Deficiency of Vitamins, minerals and other immunecompromising conditions. In Ayurveda, Madhumeha, Kushta, Kshaya, Vishjushti and repeated trauma are the factors which retard the healing of wound. Sushruta also mentioned these non-healing ulcers with the name of “Dushta Vrana”. He mentioned that a wound having black/red/yellow/white colour, full of slough of necrosed muscles, vessels, tendons etc. having multiple tracts or pockets, unpleasant look and odour with severe pain, burning, suppuration, redness, itching, oedema, complicated with resides all around discharge of vitiated blood in it and the vrana is of very chronic nature. Leech application and Aloe vera with Apamarg Kshar for local application provide encouraging results in the management of chronic ulcer.
