Effect of Homoeopathy in the Treatment of Subarachnoid Haemorrhage of Brain: A Case Report

Ramkrishna Ghosh, Palas Ghosh, Aniruddha Banerjee*

A subarachnoid haemorrhage results from medical aneurysmal rupture or traumatic head injury. Subarachnoid Haemorrhage occurs in the subarachnoid space between the Arachnoid membrane and the Pia mater that surrounds the brain. Patients typically present complaining of a severe headache; however, only 10% of patients presenting to the emergency department complaining of a thunderclap headache end up having a subarachnoid haemorrhage. A case is presented in this paper with radiological evidence of a hyperdensity is noted in subarachnoid space with diffuse mild cerebral edema. Intracranial haemorrhage and Ischemic cerebrovascular accident were excluded. The patient was treated with homoeopathic medicines – Arnica Montana 3x, one drop in QDS followed by Arnica Montana 200, 3 doses. Follow-up imaging at 45 days showed complete resolution of the subarachnoid haemorrhage. This case report suggests homoeopathic treatment as a promising complementary or alternative therapy.
