Background: Temperament or mezaj refers to four different humors differentiating in individuals and, as a result, proposes specific therapy for their diseases.
Objective: The aim of this study was to overview the scientific correlation between temperaments in Unani medicine and diseases.
Methods: This study was carried out from March 2015 to February 2016. A computerized search of published articles was performed using PubMed, Google Scholar, Scopus and Web of Science, and Medline databases as well as local and regional resources between 1983 and 2014. The search terms used were temperament, dystemprament, diseases, mizaj, sue mizaj. Additional sources were identified through cross-referencing.
Results: The result of this study indicated the relationship between dystemprament and incidence of some diseases such as muscle diseases, skin diseases, asthma, palpitation, bipolar disorder, hemodialysis hysteria, hypertension, sinusitis, aging, diabetes, diarrhea. However, further studies are needed to prove the role of dystemprament in incidence of other diseases.
Conclusion: The result of this study indicated the relationship between dystemprament and incidence of some disease such as muscle diseases, skin diseases, asthma, palpitation, bipolar disorder, hemodialysis hysteria, hypertension, sinusitis, aging, diabetes, diarrhea. These results are helpful for patients and physicians to change humors toward equilibrium to avoid diseases. Further studies are required to discover the relationship between dystemprament and other diseases.

Ethics of Publishing Case Reports: Do We Need Ethics Approval and Patient Consent?
An editorial by Dr. Mehrdad Jalalian
The worldwide spread of COVID-19 as an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and the dramatic need of urgent medicine or vaccine, has rapidly brought new hypotheses for pathophysiology and potential medicinal agents to the fore. It is crucial that the research community provide a way to publish this research in a timely manner.
To contribute to this important public health discussion, the Electronic Physician Journal is excited to announce a fast-track procedure to help researchers publish their articles on COVID-19 related subjects that fall under the broad definition of public health, internal medicine, and pharmacology. We are especially welcome to all hypotheses about the pathological basis of the COVID-19 infection and the possible characteristics of potential medicine and vaccine. Submit your manuscript here
