Case Report


Most thyroid nodules are asymptomatic. Visible nodules are of great concern to the patient because of the cosmetic embarrassment they cause. Affected patients are euthyroid i.e. serum T3, T4 & TSH are normal. A case of colloidal nodular goiter presented at Regional Research Institute (RRI) (H), Shimla. Her thyroid profile was within normal range and Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology was clearly suggestive of colloidal nodular goiter. Partial thyroidectomy was advised due to cosmetic reasons. The fear of surgery brought the patient to RRI (H), Shimla for treatment. She was treated with homoeopathic medicines following holistic concepts of Homoeopathy and the result was complete disappearance of Thyroid nodule. Sulphur initiated the action and Lycopodium completed the cure.
