Abstract

EFFICACY OF UNANI MEDICATIONS AND TALEEQ (LEECH THERAPY) IN THE MANAGEMENT OF TAQASHSHUR JILD (PSORIASIS) - A CASE REPORT

Dr. Humyra Tabasum*

ABSTRACT

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory dermatological disorder with a worldwide distribution. A wide variety of treatment modalities are available comprising of topical and systemic therapies and phototherapy. Although these are effective, but are associated with significant adverse effects. In Unani (Greco Arab) texts, management of psoriasis is explained in detail with effective and well tolerated medicaments and regimental procedures. The aim of this case report was to evaluate the affectivity of Unani medicaments and leech therapy in a diagnosed case of psoriasis. The patient was continuously assessed by PASI criteria. The patient showed marked improvement in alleviation of the lesions as compared to the lesions not exposed to leech therapy in the time period of 1 month. Thus, it appears that leaching along with oral other Unani preparations may be an effective mode of therapy in the management of psoriasis. Further research with appropriate sample size is warranted to establish these results.

Keywords: Taleeq; leech therapy; psoriasis; taqashshur jild; Unani system of medicine.
