The efficacy of homoeopathic remedies in acute diseases are also in the great question which direct us to this study in acute disease with the help of Symptom Register. Moreover, the Global burden of disease 2015 reported that acute cases has the incidence more towards the infectious diseases including upper respiratory tract infection (17.2 billion), diarrhoeal diseases (2.39 billion) and injuries (more than 10%) around 2 billion cases in 2015. The diarrhoeal diseases and lower respiratory diseases were included among the individual cause of the DALYs in India 2016. This is also piloting us towards the acute diseases. OBJECTIVES: 1. To study Symptom Register as a tool for indicating simillimum in homoeopathic management of acute diseases. 2. Clinical verification on Symptom Register in acute diseases. 3. Generate data on frequently used rubric in treatment of acute diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A sample of 30 cases diagnosed cases of Acute diseases, who had visited the OPD, IPD and Rural centers of Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical college, were randomly selected for the study. Cases were recorded in the pre structured SKHMC case format. Necessary investigations were done. Repertorization was done by taking Characteristic symptom of the patient.
