Rhinocerebral Aspergillosis Treatment in Ayurveda

Rhinocerebral Aspergillosis (RA) is a highly fatal infection, particularly in immune-suppressed patients as well as people who have undergone bone marrow transplantation (BMT).With the cases of occurrence of Rhinocerebral aspergillosis in patients undergoing BMT having become increasingly common, the condition can involve almost all of the major head and neck structures, including the nose, orbits and paranasal sinuses. One of the potentially life-threatening complications of RA is the intracranial extension of the infection, which is evidently the biggest concern linked to the disease.

Rhinocerebral aspergillosis (RA), like other Aspergillosis diseases, is believed to be caused by a type of fungus called Aspergillus. It is a common mold (fungus) which exists indoors and outdoors, and most people breathe in its spores every day without falling sick. However, the potential risk of developing health problems related to Aspergillus is fairly high for people who have a weakened immune system or those who are suffering from lung diseases.

Rhinocerebral aspergillosis (RA) is a disease which is difficult to diagnose because of its non-specific presenting symptoms, especially in BMT patients with fever, leukopenia, and concomitant infections. Nonetheless, an important diagnostic tool for the disease is Computed Tomography (CT); with the final confirmation of the diagnosis requiring microbiologic and/or histologic examinations.

Rhinocerebral Aspergillosis: Symptoms

The symptoms of Rhinocerebral aspergillosis (RA) typically depend on the organs which are affected by the infection. However, some of the common indications of the disease include:

  • Fever and chills
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Joint pain
  • Hemoptysis (Cough which brings up blood-streaked sputum)
  • Turbid yellow or straw-colored nasal discharge
  • Severe bleeding from the lungs
  • Headaches
  • Eye problems/visual loss
  • Nosebleed
  • Disorientation
  • Seizures
  • Swelling on one side of the face
  • Facial pain and tenderness.

Rhinocerebral Aspergillosis: Treatment

The treatment of Rhinocerebral aspergillosis (RA) generally involves surgical debridement, irrigation of the affected cavity, and systemic anti-fungal therapy with amphotericin B, which is presently the most preferred drug for most systemic mycoses.

    Good to know that you stayed consistent with your treatment. Most people quit just after their first pitfall, sometimes it takes about a year to see the results.
