Diseases are re-emerging and re surging in nature. Any infection, be it bacterial, viral or any other type has historical evidence of re-emergence once in a while. Awareness about the disease cases of ancient times and their detail information is important to combat any sudden future emergency situation caused by any lately re-emerging pathogen. Ancient remedies answered several important medical conditions which we are not able to even today. Therefore, investigating that aspect should be another eminent direction of modern science. Old preventive measures for disease conditions are still used in several cultures, emphasizing their eternal importance.

This process furnishes the clinical and microscopic findings of a particular disease, with details like date and time of its emergence including symptoms and suggesting possible remedies in preventing and combating the disease effectively. This would be helpful in the diagnosis, characterization and therapy of various marked diseases
