Background: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory, hyper proliferative skin disease. It is an autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disease of the skin, sufficient to cause much embarrassment to the patient with its distressing infection episodes. The Patient under report attended for the complaint of shining, scaly, coppery eruption in the eyes and corners of mouth for the last 3 years. She had been suffering from psoriasis diagnosed clinically. After unsatisfactory outcome with modern medicine, patient turned to homoeopathic treatment.
Method: After detailed case-taking and repertorization Psorinum 200c, one single dose was prescribed, after which patient began to improve in the subsequent visits and after that he was kept on placebo till he became symptom free on her last visit.
Results: The causal association of clinical outcome to the homoeopathic treatment was evaluated using Modified Naranjo Criteria for Homoeopathy (MONARCH) tool. Significant improvement was found in the psoriatic skin affections as evidenced photographically. The MONARCH score (+9) suggested that the clinical improvement was likely attributable to the homoeopathic treatment.
Conclusion: This present case-report suggests the effectiveness of homoeopathic remedies in treatment of psoriasis, but further clinical trials are required to validate its results and to explore a new horizon.
