This work deals with gas chromatography mass spectrometric analysis of one Unani medicine, Khustha Hajrul Yahood, which is prescribed for urinary tract related ailments like urolithiasis, urinary tract infections, gonorrhoea etc. The medicine was bought from a Unani medicine shop and was processed suitably for gas chromatophraphy mass spectroscopic analysis. The results indicated the presence of many molecules such as Decane, 1-iodo-, Acetic acid, chloro-, decyl ester, 2-Isopropyl-5-methyl-1-heptanol, Sulfurous acid, butyl undecyl ester, Cyclohexane, 1-ethyl-1,3-dimethyl-, trans-, alpha-Santalol, Dodecanedioic acid, Methyl 2-hydroxy-octadeca-9,12,15-trienoate, Phthalic acid, hexadecyl hex-3-yl ester etc. which have far reaching medicinal roles, which could contribute to the medicinal role of Khushta Hazrul Yahood in treating urinary tract related ailments.
