Cervical erosion, a benign lesion is sometimes much troublesome due to its chronicity and nature of recurrence. It is the replacement of the stratified squamous epithelium of the portio-vaginalis by the columnar epithelium of endocervix. Considering the feature of cervical erosion, it can be correlated with Garbhashayagrivagata Vrana. The treatment is designed to destruct overgrowth columnar epithelium either by chemical substances or cryosurgery or electric cautery. In Ayurvedic classics for destruction of any such lesion kshara is prescribed. Keeping these points in view, the present work a clinical comparative study has been made to assess the effect of Snuhi Kshara cauterization and electric cautery cauterization in cervical erosion cases. The Kshara and Electric cautery were applied locally on eroded cervix and results were assessed on the basis of epithelization of erosion and improvement in symptoms. The study reveals that Snuhi Kshara (Euphorbia neriefolia) cauterization showed better results than electric cautery cauterization.
