Background: Non healing necrotising Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is quoted as Madumegapun (Diabetic Ulcer) in the Siddha literatures. Diabetic foot is one of the most significant and devastating complications of diabetes and is defined as a foot affected by ulceration that is associated with neuropathy. Case Report: Fifty two  years old female was visited in Dr. Rajkumars siddha clinic., Chennai-47. with complaints of ulcer in the left plantar aspect of foot with foul odour, pus discharge from the ulcer, swelling in the peri-wound area since one month. Case Assessment: Severity of the ulcer was measured by the Diabetic Ulcer Severity Score (DUSS), and prognosis. And, it emphasizes on the importance of proper medication for DFU and to focus on the Siddha management with Aavarai kudineer  Chooranam (Anti-diabetic Siddha drug) and Maththan Thailam (Wound healing Siddha external Oil) along with Triphala decoction wash and Parangipattai chooranam tablet and Rasagandhi mezhugu capsule internally. Conclusion: Intervention of Siddha medicine can potentially heal the Diabetic foot ulcer with regulating the blood sugar level. They could have a massive impact, in reducing necrotised tissues and depth of the wound and it covers the wound with granulation tissues as well as it reduces overall infection rates, amputations, plastic surgeries and improving the overall quality of life and lower the economic burden in treating DFU and this procedure is also a cost effective , easily undergoing and with high safety margin.
