Case Report


Introduction: Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of the most common psychiatric disorders. It is characterised by unwanted and distressing thoughts, images, or urges (obsessions) and repetitive behaviours or mental acts that aim to decrease the resulting distress. Case Summary: A 26-year-old man presented with intrusive thoughts, ritualistic acts and compulsive actions. After case taking, Calcarea carbonicum, Lycopodium, Sulphur and Tuberculinum bovinum were prescribed as and when required based on symptom presentation during the course of homoeopathic treatment. Individualised homoeopathic medicines led to a remarkable improvement in the case by relieving him of his obsessive and compulsive thoughts and enabling him to engage in his social, occupational and familial life without adverse effects.
