Abstract: Haemorrhoids also known as piles are swelling or varicosity of haemorrhoidal vein. Internal haemorrhoids are symptomatic anal cushions and characteristically lie in the 3, 7 and 11 o’clock positions (with the patient in the lithotomy position). Usually conventional treatment for 1st and 2nd degree haemorrhoids are conservative and if failed then surgical interventions are used, where in 3rd and 4th degree haemorrhoids surgical interventions are used. A 25 years old male reported with 2nd degree haemorrhoids since 2 years. A complete case history was taken and on the basis of individualization, Lycopodium clavatum was given. Digital rectal examination and proctoscopy was done at regular interval for assessment of condition and Visual Analog Scale was used for assessment of pain. It shows effect of constitutional homoeopathic medicine in treatment of internal haemorrhoids.
