Clinical Cases

A Case of Infantile Uterus

Written by Seema Mahesh

Dr. Seema Mahesh presents a case of infantile uterus.

This is a very simple case so to say because the prescription is very direct and so was the effect. Dwarfism/underdevelopment of any part when there are no other indications usually is an indication for Baryta carbonica and the result is worth documenting.


This is the case of a 20 year old girl, complaining of irregular menses and scanty flow. She was married for 1 year and problems increased after she took hormones to postpone her menses during her wedding.  Her last menstrual period (LMP) was on 08/03/2016.  Emotionally, she had become disappointed at being forced to marry, as she had dreams of studying further and having a career. The ultra sound scan report from 1 year back showed bilateral PCOD and hypoplastic infantile uterus and minimal collection in the Pouch of Douglas.

Prescription: Baryta Carb 30C twice a day for 1 week
