A young boy complained of difficulty in breathing since 3 days, which gradually worsened to such an extent wherein it was difficult for him to utter even a single sentence. His history of present illness revealed few interesting points:
- It all started with a desire to take deep breaths.
- Then he started getting breathless every afternoon at exactly 3.00 p.m.
- He was worse on sitting, lying down and when asleep; but was relieved a little after eating and he preferred to stand as it made him feel better.
He was prescribed allopathic medicines and bronchodilators by his allopathic physician, with no special relief of his complaints
He had no past or family history of breathlessness, or of asthma, allergies or eczema.
On auscultation his lungs revealed scattered rhonchi all over.
The physician carefully studied the interesting facets of the case and prescribed him Cedron. The young boy could breathe easily after few doses, and he continued to do so without any relapses in the last 7 years.
