There are many cases of benign neoplasm treated successfully by homoeopathy till date. There are no doubts regarding the rich homoeopathic therapeutics available for the treatment of these tumours. But it is very important to identify the scope and limitation of homoeopathy in treating such cases along with the surgical intervention whenever needed.
Also it is essential to be well accustomed with our tools, i.e. repertories and their adaptability. Hence this study will focus mainly on the rubrics used for benign neoplasms of breast from various repertories and the way these rubrics are presented and arranged in different types of repertories. Also the objective of the study is to find the repertories more useful in cases of benign neoplasms of breast including the peculiar, rare and characteristic rubrics.
The repertories used were Phatak’s Repertory, Murphy’s Repertory, Kent’s Repertory, BBCR and Knerr’s Repertory.
