Common warts (verucca vulgaris) are HPV-associated, one of the common dermatological lesions characterized by hyperkeratotic, exophytic and dome-shaped papules or nodules especially located on fingers, hands, knees, elbows or any other sites of trauma. Here, a 5 years old boy presented with one year history of multiple warty lesions on joints of bilateral hands with occasional pain, diagnosed with common warts. Initially no changes was observed with homoeopathic medicine selected on the basis of totality of symptoms. On changing the medicine giving more priority to location of warts, he gradually showed remarkable improvement and reached remission by the end of 21 days. Remission maintained without any recurrence over the next 6 months. Hence, the main lesson from this case is the demonstration of importance of particular symptoms in the treatment of one-sided diseases.
Key words : Common warts, Sarsaparilla, Repertory, Homoeopathy.
