Resolution of Hemorrhagic Ovarian Cyst by Unani Formulations - A CaseReport
Hemorrhagic ovarian cyst (HOC) is an adnexal mass formed due to bleeding into a follicular or corpus luteum cyst. Most of the time, it disappears spontaneously with conservative treatment except in few cases surgical intervention is needed. In Tibb-e-Unani hemorrhagic ovarian cyst may be considered as a disease occurring due to Fasade Dam and over ascendance of Balgham and can be treated with Unani drugs having Mohalill-e-Awram,Moaddil-e-Dam and NafaeSudda-e-Har properties. Unani medicine claims to possess a number of single and compound drugs that can be successfully used to resolve the cyst and prevent surgical intervention. In the present study an infertile, married woman of 22 years old, diagnosed to be affected with hemorrhagic ovarian cyst on clinical parameters, laboratory investigations and ultrasonography findings.
