Cerebrovascular stroke is the most common source of neurological debility in the present adult population worldwide. Its manifestation, symptoms, and pathogenesis can be understood with Pakshaghata (~cerebrovascular stroke) in Ayurvedic parlance. This can be managed through Ayurveda principles with appropriate Panchakarma procedures and oral medications. A case of 23-year-old male who was diagnosed with sudden severe stroke of totally dependent and severe disability with intracranial acute hematoma and hemorrhagic abnormalities was successfully treated with planned Ayurveda interventions. Significant improvement in the degree of disability was found and the interventions modulated him into partially dependent and moderate disability. The minimal strategic intervention used resulted in the significant recovery in overall quality of life. Consequently, the study validates that the treatment planned with Ayurveda principles along with suitable Panchakarma therapies and oral medications has a potential role in the management of Pakshaghata.
