27 years old male, average in height (height calculator for boys), stocky, silky hair referred by one of my pts. He came with parents & brother. Horrible face with ulcer over nose, black spot on face, red, bleeding eyes.

He comes from Faquir Muslim community. Family consists of parents, younger brother and grandparents who are living in a village. Father is married with her foi’s daughter. He is good by nature. Mother is short tempered. She irritates over patient in matters of work. But no any effect on pt. Happy goes lucky type of childhood.

He was good in study, sharp memory but he failed in 10th standard. He wept a lot which caused bleeding from eyes, difficulty in vision. He was identifying person by his/her noise. He left study after this failure. He is good in drawing.He likes to play cricket, volleyball and chess. He wants to play with Mr. Viswanath Anand. He always wins in chess against the computer. He likes drawing, watches movies, listen to music.

He worked in a garage after he left his studies. He became a master to find out faults in vehicles. He can identify fault of vehicle from its firing. He never uses air pressure machine to check pressure in tire. He judges the pressure by touch only. His assessment is accurate if any customer checks with air pressure guage. He left garage because of vision problem. He has more interest in mechanical works. He used to drive all the vehicles but now can not because of his eye problem.

His parents were searching for a girl for him during this period. Parents introduced him to many girls but he refused because of his problem. He selected one girl after pressure of parents. He felt better after engagement which remains for 3 years. His complaints increased after break up of his engagement. He hlad constant thoughts “Why did she leave me”. His temperament changed after this incidence. He became irritated by small matters. Once he threw his watch in anger.

Finally he married in 2005 with Mrs.X who is 17 years old. Her parents died and left money for her but her relatives distribute it all. She denied going to her relatives’ home. She never tells them. This thing irritates the patient. He slaps her if she can not follow according to his wishes.

He has anxiety about health, future. Fear of water. He can not see the suffering of others. He weeps alone. Once he brought his relative in his rickshaw to hospital even though his eye sight was not proper. He is mixing with others very easily. He wept when his neighbor shifted to another place.

He likes animals. He had one cat which is very active. He wept lot after death of cat. He had one pet dove and a dog. One eye of dove was lost which gave him suffering. He believes that his eye was lost because of the dove lost its eye.

provisional store so snaps are not available of every follow up.

COMMENTS: Cancer can cured by homeopathy but it depends upon the stage. It was a challenging case for me. The patient looked horrible when I saw him the first time. Homeopathy works nicely in such pathologies where allopathic doctors lose their faith.
