Resolution of the Cervical Low-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion (LSIL) by Murr ointment (Unani formulation): A Case Report
A 28-year-old married woman attended female OPD of National Institute of Unani Medicine Hospital, Bangalore in January 2022 with a chief complaint of white discharge per vaginum in the past 1 year, which was thick in consistency, copious in amount, white in colour, irritant, and non-offensive and associated with lower abdominal pain and low back ache as stated by the patient, and no associated co-morbidities. Pelvic examination showed copious white mucoid discharge with the hypertrophied, irregular cervix and grade 3 cervical ectopy. In this case report of women with cervical LSIL on a pap smear, 6g Murr ointment (Unani formulation) was applied with an applicator per vaginum on the eroded cervical area daily once at bedtime for 4 weeks & women underwent scheduled follow-up examinations once fortnightly for 4 weeks to observe healing of cervical erosion. On clinical examination after 4 weeks of treatment, significant improvement in the amount of vaginal discharge, cervical grading, and associated symptoms were observed, and the pap smear was normal. Topical application of the ointment was not only effective in the management of LSIL but also, has shown encouraging results in treating the condition. No untoward reactions were observed in this case study.
