Abstract:
Introduction: Duodenal Ulcer is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders encountered in clinical practice. It causes various distressing symptoms like dyspepsia, nausea and vomiting, abdominal bloating and weight gain due to post prandial amelioration of symptoms. Commonest complications include upper gastrointestinal bleeding, increased Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and varying degrees of anaemia with associated fatigue.
Case report: We present a case of 56year old male complaining of burning pain in epigastrium with nausea, vomiting and dyspeptic troubles for 6months. The endoscopic report confirmed it to be a case of Duodenal Ulcer. After thorough clinical evaluation, the patient was treated with different potencies of Nux vomica and Sulphur at different point of time as suggested by patient’s symptom-complex. Marked improvement in symptomatology was noted with Individualised Homoeopathic treatment for 16 months. The outcome was also recorded with endoscopy report following the treatment.
Conclusion: The case shows excellent response of a patient suffering from duodenal ulcer to Individualised Homoeopathic medication. However, a single case report may not draw any significant inference regarding efficacy of Homoeopathic treatment in duodenal ulcer. So large scale clinical trials are required to establish the effectiveness of Homoeopathic therapeutic tools.
