Introduction: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are highly prevalent in men and the incidence increases with aging. The pathophysiology of LUTS is multifactorial and is characterized by voiding and storage symptoms. Acharya Sushruta described 12 types of Mutraghata along with its management in the form of single drug or compound formulations. Clinical Finding & Diagnosis: This is a case of LUTS secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia; the patient was a known case of urosepsis, obstructive uropathy, and presented with LUTS with a Foley urethral catheter in situ for refractory urinary retention. Interventions: Despite the poor prognosis of the complicated LUTS, conservative treatment was given as per the management principles of urinary disorders in Ayurveda which showed a great potential in the management of complicated LUTS. Conclusion: The bothersome urinary symptoms of the patient were improved along with improvement in the quality of life and better compliance was observed by the patient.
