ayu:manthra's Effective Treatment of a 10-Year-Old Patient with Pseudo Rheumatoid Dysplasia

Patient Details:

- Age: 10

- Gender: Male

- Location: Chattisgarh


Abstract


This case study presents a 10-year-old patient diagnosed with progressive pseudo rheumatoid dysplasia. The patient experienced lower limb deformity, waddling gait, finger deformity, difficulty in rising from a sitting position, hip joint pain, weakness, and lack of strength. MRI imaging revealed C1-C2 fusion in the cervical spine. Genetic analysis identified a homozygous variant (c.210c>A) in the WISP3 gene, indicating autosomal recessive inheritance. The patient underwent a 14-day Ayurvedic treatment regimen, including Abhyanga with choorna pinda sweda, Dhanyamla dhara, Nasya, Shastika Shali Pinda Sweda, Lepam, and bandhana. After the treatment, the patient experienced significant relief from hip pain, improved ability to get up from a sitting position, and regained strength. The patient was advised to continue oil application externally and received prescribed medications upon discharge. A structured daily routine was incorporated into the patient's lifestyle, resulting in ongoing relief from body pain.



Introduction


Progressive pseudo rheumatoid dysplasia is a rare genetic disorder characterized by musculoskeletal abnormalities, joint pain, and functional limitations. This case study explores the successful management of a 10-year-old patient with this condition using Ayurvedic treatments. The patient's clinical examination, genetic analysis, treatment protocol, and resulting improvements are discussed.


Case Presentation


The patient presented with lower limb deformity, waddling gait, finger deformity, difficulty in rising from a sitting position, hip joint pain, weakness, and lack of strength. MRI imaging revealed C1-C2 fusion in the cervical spine. Genetic analysis identified a homozygous variant (c.210c>A) in the WISP3 gene, indicating autosomal recessive inheritance.


Treatment and Management


The patient underwent a comprehensive 14-day Ayurvedic treatment regimen. The treatments included Abhyanga with choorna pinda sweda (herbal powder bolus massage), Dhanyamla dhara (pouring warm fermented medicinal liquid), Nasya (nasal administration of medicated oils), Shastika Shali Pinda Sweda (rice poultice massage), Lepam (application of herbal paste), and bandhana (bandaging). After completing the treatment, the patient was advised to rest for an additional two weeks.





Results


Following the Ayurvedic treatment, the patient experienced significant relief from hip pain and was able to get up from a sitting position without difficulty. The patient also reported regained strength. These improvements were confirmed through clinical assessments and observations.


Advice and Follow-up

Upon discharge, the patient was advised to continue external oil application and was provided with prescribed medications for ongoing management. The patient was also counseled on the importance of maintaining a structured daily routine to support overall well-being and manage symptoms.


Conclusion


This case study highlights the effective management of progressive pseudo rheumatoid dysplasia using Ayurvedic treatments. The patient experienced substantial relief from hip pain, improved mobility, and regained strength. Ayurvedic therapies, coupled with lifestyle modifications, have demonstrated promising outcomes in this case. Further research and studies are warranted to explore the long-term benefits and efficacy of Ayurvedic interventions in treating progressive pseudo rheumatoid dysplasia.
