Introduction: A nasal polyp (NP) is a type of growth inside the nose or sinuses typically presenting with nasal congestion, nasal obstruction and anosmia or hyposmia. It is amenable to the individualised homoeopathic treatment. In this case, we present how an NP in a female child was successfully treated with individualised homoeopathy.

Case Summary: A case of NP in a 5-year-old female child presented to the outpatient department in November 2021. It was bleeding frequently, especially when hurt. It blocked the right nostril and was visible from the outside. Acidum nitricum (Acid-nit) was prescribed based on the totality of symptoms. After a few follow-ups, the patient started improving and the bleeding stopped. The size of the polyp also diminished gradually. Within 1 and ½ months of starting treatment, the polyp disappeared. This case is a testimony of the usefulness of homoeopathy in NPs. Further research could define the role of homoeopathy in the management of NPs.
