Abstract: Acute Tonsillitis is affecting millions of children every year. Acute tonsillitis itself is usually not a grave condition but can lead to complications if left untreated. Homoeopathy can be used as a good alternative to the conventional methods in treating both acute and viral tonsillitis cases with early resolution of symptoms and reducing the chances of complications.

Most prescribed medicines were Belladonna, Merc sol, Hep sulph, Aconite etc. visual analogue scale both before and after the treatment was used to assess the intensity of changes in the symptoms felt by the patient. Conclusion-Present study showed significant results with recovery in 34 cases and improvement in 9 cases. Homoeopathic approach in treating cases of acute tonsillitis cases on the basis of individualization and totality of symptoms shows remarkable success.
