Fibroadenoma is the commonest benign breast tumor in adolescent and young women. Conservative management with regular observation is the rule for newly diagnosed patients. For progressive growth in young patients or failure of regression in patients above 35 years surgical intervention is contemplated. But there may be recurrence after surgery and patients are often apprehensive of surgery. Here, a 18-year-old girl presented with a palpable, non-tender, movable lump in the left breast at upper outer quadrant progressively increasing in size over last 2 years and was advised for surgery. Sonomammography and FNAC confirmed it as simple fibroadenoma (3.48 × 2.38 centimeter). She was successfully treated by individualized homoeopathic treatment with single medicine Pulsatilla nigricans over 15 months. Serial Sonomammography reports revealed progressive regression of Fibroadenoma to non palpable state. Possible causal attribution of changes was explicitly depicted by Naranjo Criteria. It shows positive role of Homoeopathic treatment in regression of fibroadenoma in a young woman.
