Introduction: Cholelithiasis or gallstone disease is a very common problem worldwide. The prevalence is more in females than males. Although cholecystectomy is considered the gold standard treatment for symptomatic cholelithiasis, it has its own limitations, risks and post-operative complications. Here, an alternative system of medicine, especially Homoeopathy, plays an important role in treating cholelithiasis. Case Summary: A 32-year-old female patient presented with the symptoms of dull pain in the right hypochondrium, sour eructations and regurgitation of food. The ultrasonography (USG) report confirmed the presence of multiple stones in the gallbladder of varying sizes, from 3 mm to 11 mm. Although she was advised for cholecystectomy, she was reluctant to undergo any surgery. Detailed case was taken, case was analysed, totality was formed, repertorization was done and Lycopodium was prescribed in fifty millesimal potency. Her symptoms were alleviated within a short span of time, and USG reports revealed that there were no stones after 3 months of treatment. Homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium, selected on the basis of totality of symptoms, was found effective in this case.
