Author(s): Ghulam Yaseen
Primary Pure red cell aplaisa is a syndrome due to failure of erythropoiesis, normocytic anemia with severe reticulocytopenia due to the marked reduction of erythroid precursors in the bone marrow. Johnson-Blizard syndrome is rare, autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant, multisystem congenital disorder having abnormal development of pancreas, nose and scalp with mental retardation, hearing loss and growth failure. A case reported was a 3 months old male infant having prediagnosed primary pure red cell aplasia and Johnson-Blizard syndrome with marked pancreatic insufficiency. He presented with profuse greenish-bulky stools and severe pallor complexion. Homeopathic medicines Calcarea phos and Podophyllum was given in 3x potencies according to the sign and symptoms. Frequency of stool reduced within a month and his haemoglobin level also increased with passage of time. Medicine continued for almost 10 months and follow-up visits showed no recurrence of pure red cell aplasia. Homeopathic remedy Calcarea phos 3x is highly effective to increase the haemoglobin level and Podophyllum 3x is helpful to manage profuse stools.
