Role of Septilin in Fungal Otitis Externa, Chronic Sinusitis

E.N.T. specialists often come across chronic diseases which are not readily amenable to present-day treatment. A safe and effective antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent without toxic or hypersensitivity reactions is necessary to bring about relief in these cases. Septilin, an indigenous compound of The Himalaya Drug Co. has earned recognition as such an agent which besides having a curative action, prevents recurrences. Septilin is indicated in infection of the ear, nose and throat such as otorrhoea, acute otitis media, chronic suppurative otitis media, otitis externa, mastoiditis, acute and chronic sinusitis, catarrhal sinusitis, maxillary sinusitis, acute tonsillitis, follicular tonsillitis, acute coryza, the common cold and nasal catarrh; laryngitis, pharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, peritonitis, acute and chronic bronchitis and U.R.T.I.

COMPOSITION

Each tablet of Septilin contains:

Balsamodendron mukul 0.162 g

Maharasnadi quath 65 mg

Exts. Phyllanthus emblica 16 mg

Tinospora cordifolia 49 mg

Rubia cordifolia 32 mg

Moringa pterygosperma 16 mg

Pristimera indica 6 mg

Shankh bhasma 32 mg

MATERIAL AND METHODS

Two hundred cases were selected at random from E.N.T. Out-patient Department and studied. The study group included fifty cases of Fungal Otitis Externa, sixty-five cases of Chronic Sinusitis, forty-five cases of Chronic Tonsillitis and forty cases of Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media. These patients were given Septilin 2 t.d.s. x 7 days and then 1 t.d.s. x 14 days and followed up for more than four months. Results were assessed and inferences drawn depending upon the response to the drug.

RESULTS

A) In Fungal Otitis Externa

Fifty cases of Fungal Otitis Externa were divided into two groups - Group A and Group B. In Group A (40 patients), Septilin + locally acting anti-fungal drugs were given. In Group B (10 patients), Septilin alone was given.

B) In Chronic Sinusitis

Sixty-five patients of Chronic Sinusitis were divided into two groups — Group A and Group B. In Group A (10 cases), Septilin was given and proof puncture was done. In Group B (55 cases), Septilin alone was given.

X-ray pictures of PNS (occipito mental view) of 3 cases of Chronic Sinusitis taken before treatment with Septilin and 6 to 7 months after the treatment (with excellent results) are submitted for comparison. The earlier X-rays showed haziness of both the antra in all the cases. In addition, in two cases there was mucosal hypertrophy of both maxillary antra and nasal cavities. The post-treatment X-rays showed clear antra in all three cases. In Case No. 1, besides administration of Septilin, proof puncture was done and nasal decongestant drops and steam inhalations were given.

C) In Chronic Tonsillitis

All the forty-five cases of Chronic Tonsillitis were treated with Septilin alone. There was complete cessation of signs and symptoms in 30 patients (66.66%). In 10 patients (22.2%), there was a definite reduction in the number of attacks, while in 5 cases (11.1%) there was no relief at all.

D) In Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (S. O.M.)

Forty cases of Chronic S.O.M. were divided into two groups — Group A and Group B.

In Group A (25 cases) Septilin + antibiotic ear drops + aural wash were used. In Group B (15 cases)

Septilin was given along with aural wash.

1. In Fungal Otitis Externa, Septilin has been found to be most effective when used along with local anti-fungal application. The relief from otomycosis is prompt and complete as compared to patients on Septilin alone or anti-fungal drugs alone.

2. In Chronic Sinusitis, Septilin has been found very effective if antral puncture is also carried out. However, with Septilin alone, relief from Chronic Sinusitis is prompt and almost as complete as when proof puncture was done.

3. In Chronic Tonsillitis, Septilin is very effective when used alone.

4. In Chronic S.O.M., Septilin is more effective when used along with some local antibiotic ear drops.

Septilin did not show any side-effects in any patient in our series of two hundred cases. It has been our experience that the incidence of recurrence is extremely rare with Septilin. Whenever recurrence does occur, a repeat course of Septilin ensures lasting relief.
