Discussion

       Even though the Totality of symptoms makes one to think possibly Calc Carb which fits constitutionally additionally, miasmatic understanding of the case gives quick result. The constitution of the patient expresses the proliferative tendency through the past history. Hence the surface, dominent miasm is Sycosis. Thuja is prefered in high potency and further consideration of acute symptoms on sycotic understanding gives immense relief to the patient. The patient is still continuing for final prescription on psoric to complete the radical cure.
