Fever nut is a climbing shrub, commonly found scrambling over hedges near villages in many
parts of India.  In Ayurvedic medicine
powdered leaves are used in the treatment of malaria, liver disorders, and
intestinal worms and to promote bleeding or abortion. Seed extracts are used
for coughs, diabetes, piles or gout.
