Abstract: Meningiomas are generally slow growing benign tumors attached to the dura mater and are composed of neoplastic meningothelial cells. They form 24-30% of primary intracranial tumors. Most meningiomas are benign. Plaque Meningioma is defined by a sheet-like lesion that infiltrates the dura and sometimes invades the bone. A case is presented in this paper with radiological evidence of a thick meningeal enhancement in right tentorium. Malignancy and Extra cranial soft tissue masses were excluded. The patient was treated with constitutional homoeopathic medicines – Natrum Muriaticum 0/1, 16 doses up to Natrum Muriaticum 0/5, 16 doses each. Follow-up imaging at 3 months showed complete resolution of the plaque meningioma. This case report suggests homoeopathic treatment as a promising complementary or alternative therapy and emphasizes the need of repertorisation in individualized homoeopathic prescription.
