Bilaterally symmetrical, large depigmented vitiligo patches on ankles, legs, knees and upper eyelids

    This is the case of 29-year-old Miss S.J (L-6389), an engineer by profession, who reported to the clinic with a known case of Vitiligo for 10 years. Bilaterally symmetrical (Similar on both the sides), moderately depigmented patches were noticeable on her ankles, legs, knees, upper eyelids, groin and in the center of her lower back. There has been no increase in the size of the spots for the last two years. The spots were mostly larger than 5 cms in diameter.

    Besides her vitiligo, she also suffered from menstrual complaints. She had dysmenorrhoea (painful menstruation) with severe cramps in the abdomen, backache and leg pain. She had profuse flow with clots.

    She had just completed her engineering. She was of a social nature, would easily mix with others. She used to hardly ever get angry but whenever she did, it was mostly left unexpressed (suppressed anger). She had marked weeping tendencies, especially if she could not perform well or lost in any competition. She didn’t like being consoled. She used to get hurt easily if ignored. She did not like to share her problems with anyone as she felt that she would not be understood well. She hated partiality of any kind (especially partiality shown by teachers towards students). She tried not to be affected by it and therefore neglected it.

    She had suffered from chronic constipation and frequent colds in her childhood. She had no history of any major illnesses in the past. Her father was hypertensive. Her mother suffered from cervical spondylitis. Her paternal grandparents were hypertensive, and her paternal grandfather suffered from lung cancer. Her maternal grandparents suffered from Ischaemic Heart Disease. Her parent’s distant relatives had vitiligo.

    Based on her above history, she was prescribed Phosphorus 200 and Carcinosin 200 along with phototherapy treatment.

    After a month of individualized homeopathic treatment, her vitiligo had slightly decreased, but at the same time, faint new spots appeared on her left forearm, legs, abdomen, and arms. After 6 months of treatment, her menstrual complaints were relieved. Her vitiligo patches had faded up to 15 %. She developed bright red and inflamed pustular eruptions between the legs during her exams She had experienced a lot of pressure and anxiety during her exams. After persistently sticking on to the treatment there were marked visible changes in her vitiligo spots, which had by now reduced by about 50-60 %. No new spots were observed.

    This is the best example to show that homeopathic medicines, when taken in the chronic stages of the disease in cases of vitiligo, respond very well to the treatment. In such cases, the patient could be solely managed with the aid of homeopathic drugs without the requirement of any external applications.
