Introduction: Mania is a form of mood disorder initially, characterised by elevated mood, insomnia, increased libido and grandiosity. More severe forms develop elation and grandiose delusions. Case Summary: A patient reported in the Out Patient Department with symptoms of increased delusions for 3 weeks. The consultant psychiatrist diagnosed it as a case of bipolar affective disorder, current episode manic with psychotic features. Young mania rating scale (YMRS) scored 38 at the time of admission. Lachesis mutus 200 was prescribed initially and later Lycopodium clavatum 200 was prescribed, as the symptom picture changed. Overall improvement was noticed clinically and in YMRS after treatment. In this case, individualised homoeopathic treatment has shown a positive role for the remission of manic episode with psychotic features without the support adjunctive therapy or conventional medication in the current episode.
