Aim & objective: The main objective of this review article is to discuss the therapeutic uses of Kushthaghna Mahakashaya and to discuss the different pharmacological properties and therapeutic uses of isolated constituent drugs of Kushthaghna Mahakashaya. Basis of evidence: The authentic subject material has been reviewed from Ayurveda and modern medical literature. Different research and review article were searched in different journals. The subject material has also been searched on internet. Central Message: Kushthaghna Mahakashaya is described by Acharya Charak for the management of Kushtha roga (skin diseases). Kushthaghna Mahakashaya contain 10 drugs. This review is mainly focussed on different aspects of Kushthaghna Mahakashyaya. It is well recognised in Ayurveda that most of the skin diseases run a chronic course and are difficult to treat. Most of the skin diseases have strong relation with psychological stress and stress is responsible for onset and exacerbation of different skin disorders. Most of the drugs in the Kushthaghna Mahakashyaya reported to have Rasayan properties. Therefore, these drugs also help in reducing the negative effect of stress and thus help in coping with chronic skin disorders. Conclusion: Here, an attempt has been made to address chemistry, pharmacology and different therapeutic uses of Kushthagna Mahakashaya and its constituent drugs.

Keywords: Kushtha, Kushthaghna, Mahakashaya, Ayurveda, Skin disorders.
