Uterine Fibroids and Nephrolithiasis (Kidney Stone) Treated by Individualised Homoeopathic Treatment in a 50-Year-Old woman: A Case Report

Prakash Vishwakarma

Abstract: Rationale: Uterine Fibroids and Nephrolithiasis are two very common diseases which can progress onto increasing in size and number, and ultimately requiring surgery for the removal. Adopting Homoeopathy can significantly contribute to reducing and tackling the global burden of both as it is an effective, holistic, non-invasive mode of treatment with no side effects. Patient Concerns: I present here a case of a 50-year-old multiparous woman having Leiomyoma (Uterine Fibroid (UF)) and Nephrolithiasis (Kidney stone). Diagnosis: USG abdomen confirmed the presence of multiple fibroids of sizes of around (19X25 mm) on the anterior wall of the uterus. It also confirmed the presence of a 4.4 mm stone in the right kidney (Nephrolithiasis) and bowel inflammation. Other clinical and symptomatic diagnoses were Profuse Leucorrhoea, Chronic Constipation (Rome III Diagnostic Criteria for Functional Constipation met; Type I stool on Bristol stool scale) and headache due to exposure of sun and Stage II Hypertension. Interventions: The patient was treated with individualised classical homoeopathy for 3 months. Outcomes: Uterine fibroids were dissolved in 1 month and there was a 45% reduction in the size of the stone (4.4 mm to 2.4 mm) of the right kidney in 3 months. Profuse leucorrhoea was cured; hypertension and constipated condition were improved. Headaches due to the sun exposure continued to be the same. But, overall, the health of the patient improved significantly. Conclusion: The efficacy of treatment was evident by USG reports and MONARCH score (Scored 10/13). Since this report is based on a single case of recovery, the results of more such cases are warranted to strengthen the outcome of the present study. Also, here the fibroids and stones were small in size, further studies can also include larger size uterine fibroids and nephrolithiasis. In addition, follow-up of the cases after subsequent years can help us deduce the possible recurrence.
