Discussion

    Thuja was prescribed on understanding the miasmatic background of the case. The presentation of cystic nature with family history of fibroids gave a clue to prescription, however acute prescriptions are made based on the presentation of symtomatolgy to tackle pain, fever. In chronic diseases always prescription on miasmatic basis is helpful, shortens the duration of treatment and also aids in full recovery.(Refer Plate II)
