Calculi may form at any level in the urinary tract but mostly arises in the kidney (nephrolithiasis). People suffering from renal calculi entirely depend on the surgery although it is expensive, on the one hand, and may have complications, on the other hand. Hence, there is a need for alternative medicine (Homeopathy), as it avoids surgical intervention, complication, as well as cost-effectiveness. In Homeopathy, the basis of therapy is vital rather than a physiological one, i.e., the vital force must be stimulated to cure the patient, and that only other drug therapy is palliative or suppressive. The aim of the study is to know the efficacy of individualized homeopathic remedy in the dissolution or expulsion of calculus. A 23-year-old male patient came to the outpatient department, presented with pain in the right side of the lumbar region and hypochondrium for 4–5 days with difficulty in urination. Ultrasonography (USG) of the kidney, ureter, urinary bladder revealed two calculi in the right kidney, one at the upper pole (8 mm) and another one at lower pole (12 mm) calyx. Individualized homeopathic medicine Tuberculinum was prescribed in centesimal scale. USG revealed no calculus in the kidney, and serum urea and creatinine levels were found within normal limit. Therefore, it is concluded that constitutional medicine helped the patient in subsiding the pain, dissolution or expulsion of stone, and return of the natural state of the patient.
