Abstract

S. Chitra*, A. Silambarasan and S. Mahalakshmi

Abstract

Vishnukranthi kudineer is a polyherbal preparation which is indicated for 64 types of fever in children mentioned in Siddha pediatric textbook of Kuzhanthai maruthuvam. Fever in children is a common presenting problem of pediatric practice. Though it is a physiological phenomenon with enhanced immune function and possible benefits, the risk-benefit balance swings back as fever can cause fatigue, arthralgia, myalgia, anorexia, delirium, tachycardia, tachypnoea added to the risk of febrile convulsions especially in children. Pathologically fever occurs mainly through inflammation, infection and immune mediated response. In this review, the traditional Siddha formulation of Vishnukranthi kudineer Vishnukranthi [Evolvulus alsinoides.L] Sukku [Zingiber officinale] kadukkai thol [Terminalia chebula] Inndu[Acacia caesia], Vaaluzhuvai [Celastrus paniculatus] have been evaluated in the light of both traditional Siddha humoural concept and its scientific evidences on its pharmacological action against fever. Through this study the scientific exploration of traditional Siddha formulation has been extensively explored for further preclinical and clinical studies on the general management of fever in Pediatric age groups.

Keywords: Pediatrics, Kuzhanthai maruthuvam, fever, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial.
