Chronic dacryocystitis is a chronic infection of the lacrimal sac. In chronic dacryocystitis, there is obstruction of the nasolacrimal duct at the junction of lacrimal sac followed by stasis in the lacrimal sac, causing watering and discharge from the eye. In the present case report, a 24-year-old female patient suffered from this disease. She presented with the chief complaints of watering from both eyes for 6 months and mild swelling and pain over the lacrimal sac area in both eyes for 5 days. She was treated with Triphala Guggulu and Triphaladi Netra Parisheka, along with Mardana in lacrimal sac area for 1 month. After 1 month of treatment, the patient got relief from all the complaints. In lacrimal syringing, there was no any obstruction or regurgitation found. On analysis of all the data, it can be concluded that Ayurvedic management with Triphaladi Netra Parisheka and T. Guggulu along with Mardana in the lacrimal sac area offers effective result in the treatment of chronic dacryocystitis.
