Heloma durums also known as corns are areas of hard, thickened skin which commonly occur on the feet, and can cause pain, discomfort, and they also tend to reoccur. Two cases of plantar heloma durums illustrated here were treated with same medicines with similar genetic make-up, that is, father and daughter. Father received the medicine after case taking whereas 15 years later, the daughter received homoeopathic treatment given to the father. Both tried other modes of treatment including invasive procedure before being successfully cured in a short span of time with homoeopathic treatment protocol. Here, the same treatment cured both father and daughter, which indicates that the same homoeopathic medicine is effective, in similar genetic make-up for a given disease (genetic similimum). Several studies show the potential of homoeopathic medicine to regulate gene-expression in animal and plant models. It seems that the present treatment is also acting in the same fashion by regulating the gene responsible for predisposing corn formation.
