Neck swelling due to various causes is common across age groups, and invasive methods are usually done in its management. An inflammatory swelling is considered in Ayurveda as Vidradhi (~abscess) or Vranasopha (~inflammatory swelling). A 27-year-old male patient with a solitary inflammatory neck swelling was successfully treated in 21 days with noninvasive methods like internal medicines and external therapies. Internal medicine like Trayanthyadikwatha, Gopichandanadi tablet, Sudarsanam tablet, Septilin syrup, Varanadikwatha, and Abhayarista were given as per the disease progression. Therapies like medicated lukewarm gargles, Murivena, and egg white external application were also done as per the stage of inflammation. The patient had a complete recession of the swelling without any discoloration or any other complication. The results of the present case report suggested that proper evaluation of Dosha and intervention at the right time key in managing such types of swellings from suppuration and avoid surgical intervention.
