Background: Lipoma is the most common type of soft tissue tumors. Patients having more of the cosmetic value than the morbidity and mortality. It appears as a solitary, soft, movable, and painless mass that may remain stationary or grow slowly. The masses are often benign, and while the age of onset can vary, they most often develop between the age of 40 and 60 years. Everyone seeks medical care due to cosmetic reasons. There is no permanent cure found yet. In Ayurveda, lipoma can be correlated with Medoj Granthi based on similar signs and symptoms. The present clinical study is a case report on the lipoma (Medoj Granthi) along with an altered lipid profile managed successfully through Triphala Kala Basti. Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of Triphala Kala Basti in the management of lipoma, lipid profile, and reduction in weight. Case Details: In this study, a patient with lipoma visited the outpatient department of Panchakarma, AIIA Hospital. He was managed here according to Ayurveda principles and Panchakarma therapies. The lipid profile and size of lipoma were assessed before the treatment, after the treatment, and during follow-up. Result and Observation: There is a significant reduction in the size of lipoma, weight, body mass index, and lipid measurement. Discussion and Conclusion: Medoj Granthi is Meda pradhan Vata Kaphaja vyadhi. Drug required is the one which is having property against the vitiated body humors and thus Triphala is selected for the trial.
