Case Report


Introduction: Plantar warts are cutaneous lesions brought on by human papilloma virus infection. There is a range of alternative treatment available for it, including cryotherapy, chemical cauterisation, curettage, electrodessication and laser removal. However, a majority of these treatments can leave scars or may provide only temporary relief. Case Summary: A 19-year-old female presented with multiple, right-sided plantar warts and was successfully treated by a single, individualised homoeopathic medicine, Antimonium crudum 200C for two months. The improvement was assessed through photographs taken in subsequent follow-up visits. The case was monitored further for a period of six months without any recurrence. This case report indicates the possibility of a long-lasting cure with personalised homoeopathic care in cases of plantar warts.
