Among Nasagata Rogas most of the Acharyas described Apinasa including its complication which proves the seriousness of the disease. Acharya Sushruta clearly mentioned in Utttar tantra that Apinasa is the disease condition in which Vata and Kapha Dushti was observed. Atrophic Rhinitis is a chronic nasal disease characterized by progressive atrophy of the mucosa and underlying bone of the turbinates and the presence of a viscid secretion which rapidly dries and forms crust, which emits a characteristic foul odour sometimes called ozaena castench. In this study, 100 patients of Apinasa-Atrophic Rhinitis were treated in four groups. The 40 patients of 'V' group were treated with Vyoshadivati orally; the 20 patients of 'P' group were treated with Pathadi Taila in Nasya form. In group 'VP' the 20 patients were treated with Vyoshadi Vati and Pathadi Taila as a combined therapy. Group 'C' was a control group and 20 patients of this group were treated with placebo therapy. After the enrollment of the patients in the study,vital signs and symptoms of Apinasa-Atrophic Rhinitis such as nasal blockage, dryness of nose, nasal discharge etc. were studied before and after the treatment. The results of the study indicate that the "VP' group bestowed highly significant relief in almost all the signs and symptoms in comparison to 'V' and 'P' groups.
