Abstract: Adenomyomatosis of Gallbladder is characterised by hypertrophy of the mucosal epithelium and the invagination of this epithelium into the interstices of a thickened muscularis, forming sinuses called Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses. Three forms of adenomyomatosis are found in gallbladder; segmental, fundal and diffuse. Symptomatic adenomyomatosis is an indication for surgical intervention . A seventeen year old girl presented with a history of recurrent attack of upper abdominal pain of two years duration.Ultrasonography of abdomen shows the features of adenomyomatosis of gallbladder. After detailed case taking, analysis, evaluation and repertorisation Pulsatilla was given. Abdominal pain was completely relieved and ultrasound scan report of abdomen after homoeopathic treatment shows normal gallbladder contour. This result shows that constitutional homoeopathic treatment is effective in the management of Adenomyomatosis of gallbladder.
