       William .A. Allen.M.D was interested in the
        treatment of intermittent fever because
       He had many cases of intermittent fever during his
        professional career
       It has so often been asserted by the physician and
        layman that the homoeopathic treatment is totally
        unable to suppress the paroxysms, to remove the
        pathological conditions and symptoms incident to
        them- to cure

                                www.similima.com

       The repertory was written as an aid to himself in
        studying up the intermittents. This Repertory is
        based on The Homoeopathic Therapeutics of
        Intermittent Fever by H.C.Allen, Lippe’s repertory,
        Boenninghausen’s therapeutics and Gross on
        Comparative Materia Medica.

        many symptoms as possible from the patient
        (symptoms related with chill, heat, sweat and
        apyrexia stage) then taking the repertory , he
        should look upon the symptoms ,the remedies
        indicated is noted and select the drug which is most
        frequently mentioned

        IN BBCR fever chapter is divided in to different 6
         subsections
        Fever totality is the unique contribution of Boger.
         The arrangement of the chapter on fever is self
         explanatory. For the practical point of view , this
         chapter is of immense use. It has many subrubrics
         also. Concomitant in relation to chill, heat, sweat
         under different headings are really valuable at
         bedside practice.

26

        Each stage of fever is followed by Time,
         Aggravation, Amelioration and concomitants. Thus
         they help to repertorize any simple as well as
         complicated cases of fever. This is one of the best
         repertories for fever cases. They should be
         arranged properly in order to get similimum with
         the help of Bogers repertory

        REPERTORIZATION
         In a fever case, if the stages are distinct, the following
         order would be preferable. If some stage is not
         available in the case only the next stage should be
         used for repertorization.
           CHILL
             Type / partial chill/ coldness--- partial shivering
             Time

        Pathological types of fever mentioned in the
         repertory can be used for reference and final
         selection of the drug, but more importance should
         be given to the reportorial result which is obtained
         by following the above order. Section blood
         circulation should be used if symptoms are
         prominent during any of the stages of fever. Thus it
         is the unique chapter in Boger repertory . It has only
         merits and no demerits to mention. No other
         repertory can be compared with it.

                                  www.similima.com
     MERITS AND DEMERITS
41

        This is one of the important works by W.A Allen
         where he explained about intermittent fever, its
         causes, selection and time of administration of the
         remedy. In this book there is therapeutics which
         helps to have the clear picture of remedies which
         can produce fever.




                                  www.similima.com
42

        In the repertory section the types, causes, time
         modality and various stages of intermittent fever
         are represented well which helps to find the
         similimum easily. Hence this repertory guides us to
         the quick reference




                                  www.similima.com
43

        There is some difficulty in understanding the
         arrangement of the sub rubrics and the grading of
         the symptom is confusing.
