Introduction: COVID-19 is a novel SARS-CoV-2 disease that has caused a worldwide pandemic. It is highly contagious and produces severe acute respiratory syndrome. Many homoeopathic medicines have been suggested for treatment of COVID cases and reports have also been published. Case Summary: The present case report is of a 61-year-old COVID-positive, male, presenting with complications such as bronchitis and pleural effusion. He was treated for COVID-19 with a suitable homoeopathic medicine, based on the totality of symptoms, while the patient continued his regular regime of conventional medicine for diabetes mellitus and hypertension. The indicated remedy led to immediate relief of the symptoms, especially chest pain, along with a marked improvement in the laboratory investigations. The Modified Naranjo Criteria score after treatment was 8, which explicitly shows the positive causal attribution of the individualised homoeopathic medicine, Phosphorus, in this case. Homoeopathic treatment has shown favourable results in this case and demonstrates the scope of Homoeopathy in infectious cases.
