Unani System of medicine or Unani tibb is a traditional system of medicine practiced in India. Waram-e-rahem (Metritis) is the inflammation of uterus affecting its different parts. Its aetio-pathogenesis is based on the predominance of any of the four akhlat (mainly dam). The other causes include amenorrhoea, suppressed post partum haemorrhage, uterine injury and mishandling during labour. Waram-e-rahem should be suspected in patients who complain pelvic or lower abdominal pain with unknown etiology as well as who have cervical motion, uterine, or adnexal tenderness. The treatment of waram-e-rahem as per Unani classical literature is based on four (4) principles: Taskin-e-alam (analgesia), Tanqiya-e-mawad (evacuation of morbid material), Tahlil-e-waram (resolution of inflammation) and Taqlil-e-ghiza (dietary control) in initial stage. In this review article, Unani concept of waram-e-rahem with treatment is elaborated as mentioned in different Unani classical literature.
Key words: Waram-e-Rahem, Metritis, Unani classical literature, Unani drugs.
