Introduction: Plantar psoriasis is a variant of psoriasis and accounts for 3–4% of total cases of psoriasis. Psoriasis, an autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disease of the skin, can leave the patient in agony with its distressing infection episodes. The homoeopathic system of medicine offers a wide range of medicines that can have a beneficial role in managing cases of psoriasis as depicted in the previous studies. Case summary: A distinct case of plantar psoriasis treated with homoeopathic remedies of ultra-high dilution has been presented here. The evidence-based illustrations were done before and after the treatment and the periodical objective assessment of the lesions with psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) calculation to ascertain the prognosis. The causal attribution of outcome to the treatment was evaluated using Modified Naranjo Criteria for Homoeopathy (MONARCH) tool. Marked improvement was found in the psoriatic lesions evidenced photographically and the PASI scores showed significant reduction affirming the same. The MONARCH score (+9) suggested that the clinical improvement was likely attributable to the homoeopathic treatment. This evidence-based case report suggests a beneficial role of homoeopathy in the treatment of plantar psoriasis.
