Nasal polyp is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses. It is a relatively common disease occurring in 1%–4% of the general population, but it is also seen in the pediatric population. Children present with nasal polyps are also known to have other underlying systemic diseases, mainly cystic fibrosis and bronchial asthma. Nasal polyp is common in the pediatric population especially in teenage, and is found usually bilateral. It is also commonly associated with bronchial asthma and many other systemic diseases. Beginning in preschool age, up to 50% of patients experience obstructing nasal polyp. In contemporary science, nasal polyp is not curable but can be clinically stabilized. When conservative measures are exhausted, surgical intervention combining endoscopic sinus surgery and supportive conservative treatment is performed. In the present paper, we aimed to present a treated patient of nasal polyp by the ayurvedic modalities such as Snehana, Swedana, Nasya, Gandusha, and Dhoompana with a positive change in the clinical picture.
