Patient with factor V Leiden recurrent deep vein thrombosis and response to homeopathic treatment

Pedro B. Scala


Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a significant health problem with morbidity and mortality around 30%. Factor V Leiden (FVL) is a “mutated” form of the normal factor V which is inactivated 10 times slower causing hypercoagulation states and thrombosis. The present articles describes the case of a 23-year-old women in whom that status of homozygous was diagnosed on the occasion of a VTE episode. High dimer-D (DD) levels 8 years later and still under conventional treatment high pointed to high risk for recurrence of VTE. Homeopathic treatment was started (constitutional unicast) in low potency and daily doses. DD fell rapidly, and thus the prognosis changed, leading hematologists to withdraw conventional treatment. Disease did not relapse to this day and venous Doppler sonography evidenced rehabilitated vein system.
