Introduction: Alopecia areata is a dermatological disorder characterized by hair loss. The exact cause is still unknown but is linked with an autoimmune disease. No efficient treatment is known though many studies have been conducted, yet the optimal treatment is not known.

Methods: The case was treated in the Dermatological Department at Dr. D. Y. Patil Homoeopathic Medical College and Research Centre. A 42-year-old female patient with alopecia areata was treated with individualized homoeopathic medicine (iHOM) between 2nd May 2019 and 16th January 2020. During the follow-up visits, the outcome was assessed. To evaluate whether the changes were due to homoeopathic medicine, an assessment using the Modified Naranjo criteria was performed.

Results: Over an observational period of eight-months, positive results from iHOM medicine were seen. This treatment can be used by the physicians in the treatment of alopecia areata as a complementary health practice.

Conclusion: Considering the multi-factorial aetiology of alopecia areata, iHOM along with local treatment may be effective in treating alopecia areata.
