Eosinophilia is one of the common laboratory findings of Post-COVID syndrome with lingering symptoms such as cough, dyspnea, chest discomfort, and wheezing. This can be correlated with Vataja kasa by Ayurvedic point of view. Conventional management can control raised eosinophilia and provide symptomatic relief, but relapses are often observed. A 40-year-old male patient has been diagnosed with Post-COVID eosinophilia based on his presenting complaints. He was given Chatushashti prahari pippali as an intervention. After completion of eight weeks of the treatment, the patient got complete symptomatic relief and no symptoms relapsed during the follow-up period of eight weeks and patient's increased eosinophilic count turned down to its normal limits. The observations infer that the Chatushashti prahari pippali has significant benefits in Post-COVID eosinophilia. This illustrates that there is a wide scope to explore the variety of imperative medicines present in Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia, which can be used more rationally to treat various Post-COVID complications.
