Abstract

Long before the discovery of Amoeba by Friedric Losch in 1875, old Unani physicians were well aware of Amoebic dysentery with the name Zusantaria Mevi and its various complication. Rhazes described Zusantaria Mevi as a kind of diarrhoea mixed with mucous and blood caused due to ulceration of small intestine and prescribed a large number of drugs for its treatment. Sixty chronic cases of amoebic dysentery diagnosed clinically and on the basis of laboratory investigations were given compound Unani drugs Chahar Tukhm and Safoof Muqliasa orally and efficacy was assessed at different follow ups. The drugs were found effective I relieving signs and symptoms of the disease within 7 days. Also Safoof Muqliasa was found more effective than Chahar Tukhm.

Key words: CLINICAL EVALUATION, CHAHAR TUKHM, SAFOOF MUQLIASA, CHRONIC AMOEBIC DYSENTERY
