Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to “fever with diarrhea” and is one of the various diseases mentioned in the 15th-century Yogasārasaṅgraha (Yogasara-saṅgraha) by Vāsudeva: an unpublished Keralite work representing an Ayurvedic compendium of medicinal recipes. The Yogasārasaṃgraha [mentioning jvarātisāra] deals with entire recipes in the route of administration, and thus deals with the knowledge of pharmacy (bhaiṣajya-kalpanā) which is a branch of pharmacology (dravyaguṇa).

Source: Wisdom Library: Rasa-śāstra

Jvarātisāra (ज्वरातिसार) refers to “fever with diarrhoea” defined in the fourth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 3, jvarātisāra: fever with diarrhoea). Sometimes, fever (jvara), due to an excess of pitta, is attended with diarrhoea (atisāra) due to the same cause. Diarrhoea also is sometimes attended with fever. Such a combination of fever and diarrhoea is called “jvarātisāra”. One suffering from jvarātisāra should, first of all, be made to fast and to take such medicines as can digest the undigested chyle, which is invariably a partial cause of both fever and diarrhoea. Fasting and digesting medicines do away with the undigested chyle, and help to pacify the diseases.
