Abstract

Mole are common skin growth which appears as small, dark brown spots; caused by cluster of pigmented melanocytes. In Sushruta Mashaka is described among Ksudra roga as hard, painless, black and elevated eruption on the body (skin) resembling the masha pulse in shape. Mashaka can be compared with mole in modern science. Moles can be removed surgically, but Kshara are superior to the Shastra and Anushastra; due to its Tridoshaghna properties to perform Chedana, Bhedana and Lekhana. A 28 years male came with complain of mole over right side of forehead (supraorbital area) since birth, which was gradually increasing in size. It was planned to remove mole with local application of paste consisting Kasisa bhasma in Kashar taila. This case was successfully treated as after 8 days, lesion was healed up with no any complain of bleeding, burning, pain or infection of wound.
