Dr.Girish Gupta, recipient of many national and international awards, member of Central council for Research in Homoeopathy had presented many cases with evidence-based documentations. Here we give a case of cystic Hygroma presented by him. He has a scientific approach with determination to do “something Significant” and redefine Homoeopathy on modern scientific lines. This case had been treated recently and he shares his experience with all

A nine-year-old male child was brought to my clinic for large, painless, cystic, nodular and hard growth in right sub – mandibular region with mild to moderate pyrexia since 4 months. Patient was given allopathic treatment but no reduction in the size of the growth was achieved. Family history was unremarkable. Although fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) dated November 20, 2003 from the growth in right sub – mandibular region was suggestive of “Haematoma cause? Traumatic” but no history of trauma was reported by the patient, hence possibility of Cervical Lymphadenopathy or Cystic Hygroma was thought of as differential diagnosis. The case was repertorised and the symptoms considered for repertorisation were desire for company, tendency to anger and irritability, mild gentle and yielding disposition, introvert, obstinate, carelessness, restlessness, nervousness, active memory and desire for sweet things. Lycopodium was selected among the various drugs of choice.
