The normal function of the urinary bladder is to store and expel urine in coordinated, controlled fashion and is regulated by the central and peripheral nervous system. Neurogenic bladder is a term applied to urinary bladder malfunction due to neurologic dysfunction emanating from internal or external trauma to brain or spinal cord, D.M., infection, genetic nerve problem. Mainstay of treatment includes antibiotics, catheterization, and placement of an electric device to stimulate or slowdown bladder activity, surgery etc. Inspite of advances in medical science, the prognosis of this condition is poor.

According to Ayurveda, Apana Vayu Dushti is responsible for malfunction of bladder and is corrected by Basti Chikitsa. A 76 years old male patient diagnosed as case of neurogenic bladder by Urologist visited me with inserted foley’s catheter. He was successfully managed within 16 days with Murchhita Til Taila Matra Basti and Chandraprabha Vati. The treatment resulted in normal passing of urine, good bladder control and hence the foley’s catheter was removed and the patient was able to lead his normal life.
