publicationThe Department of Amraz-e-Jild wa Zohrawiya (Unani Dermatology & Venerology) came into existence in December 2011 and has played a pivotal role in development of integrated teaching , clinical training and clinical research since then. The Department has been given great emphasis by Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India because of its enriched classical literature in Amraze Jild (Skin Disorders) along with Tazeeniyat (Cosmetology). AYUSH Ministry, Government of India has identified Unani Dermatology as an area of strength in Unani System of Medicine on the basis of its historically documented work by various learned Unani scholars eg. Bu Ali Seena /AV Seena (980-1037AD), Majusi, Tabri (828-870AD) and Zakaria Razi (841-926AD) etc.
