She got married to a professional and has two children, lives happily in a joint family. She was quite desperate with her illness.
The white discolouration has started at the back and extended rapidly all over the body with in a period of one year. The lesions were trichromic with sharp margins and pinkish in some areas. The patches had started as a pinhead and extended to join with other patch and there by large areas of white coloured skin brought her an embarrassment to move in social gathering. Her past history shows that there is no heredity trait, She had suffered from Malaria during puberty and had received treatment for anaemia, no acute illnesses like typhoid or jaundice. She had loose stools most frequently and investigation revealed that amoebic cysts were present. She had been vaccinated against Tuberculosis and also received the triple antigen for Diphtheria, Pertusis and Tetanus. had administered Polio drops in childhood.
Initially she had taken allopathic Medicines, and then tried all alternative systems. Her final choice was Homoeopathy.
