Case Report


To assess the role of homoeopathic medicines in the treatment of the HIV infected persons, a study was undertaken by the CCRH at the Regional Research Institute, Mumbai in May 1989. The Individuals enrolled in the study were treated with homoeopathic medicine(s) on the basis of presenting signs and symptoms and their characteristics attributes, both mental/emotional and physical. A checklist was prepared so as to ensure that normal biological functions like appetite, stool, urine, sleep, etc. and appearance of any clinical events attributable to HIV infection were noted at regular intervals. The body weight and other investigations were monitored. A brief case study is presented here to share the information pertaining to the patient prior to the treatment and the changes observed in follow-ups for the period of last 10yrs. The observations made during the study were compared with the events reported to occur in natural course of HIV infection in absence of any treatment. Various points are discussed to make a definitive conclusion.
