Case Report


Introduction: Psoriasis is a non-communicable, chronic, mostly painful, disfiguring disease. It can have a negative impact on patients’ quality of life, which may occur at any age. The conventional treatment includes local and systemic therapies, as well as phototherapy. The need for treatment is usually lifelong as remission occurs quite frequently. Case Summary: We present here a case report of a 32-year-old woman with psoriatic lesions all over the body for 15 years with intolerable itching. The present case was completely cured after 1 year 6 months of regular treatment with individualised homoeopathic medicine without any adverse effects. After detailed case taking, Arsenic album 200C was administered. The Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score was 49 before the treatment and 0 at the end of the treatment. The Modified Naranjo criteria for Homoeopathy (MONARCH) was used for assessing causal attribution, where the score was +8, suggesting that the clinical improvement was the result of the homoeopathic treatment. Before and after treatment photographs were taken to assess the improvement. This evidence-based case could pave way for further research into using individualised homoeopathy for plaque psoriasis.
