    Discussion
    The drug selected is based on totality and prescribed on sycotic, syphilitic plethora has benefited the patient.
    Since the outward manifestations are better the deep seated miasmatic tendency expressed as AIDS also expected to give positive serological study. The treatment is on with way of hopes.
