Nasal polyps are benign masses of edematous nasal and paranasal sinus mucosa. It has become
a challenging problem in recent years. In modern science, it is clinically stabilized by
medications but not curable as there is recurrence of disease even after surgical interventions.
As per Ayurveda texts, nasal polyp can be considered as Nasarsha and its treatment principle
is same as of Arsha (Hemorrhoids). In present case study, a 24 year old male patient came with
complaint of nasal obstruction and recurrent attacks of cold with CT scan findings of sinonasal
polyposis. He was treated with local application of Tuttha along with Nasya therapy, Nasapichu
and oral medications. There was significant improvement in patient complaints and marked
reduction in polypoidal mass.
