She was a multiparous, normotensive, non diabetic, cheerful, talkative and postmenopausal lady. She preferred to be in company and was fearful of touching the feet as if they would break into pieces. This was the marked and peculiar symptom noted.

Past History

There were also swellings accompanied with itching with pitting oedema. She had chicken pox in childhood, typhoid 10 years back and developed tiny warts on her neck for a year.

Clinical diagnosis

Clinical analysis

Based on history of warts and peculiar sensation of brittleness of legs, Thuja seemed to be the remedy of choice.

Advise to keep the feet elevated and to cleanse with calendula mother tincture twice daily.
