The adenoids are present at birth and enlarge throughout childhood, reaching peak size by age seven. In most individuals, they will regress in size during puberty and may be nearly absent by adulthood. For this reason, adenoiditis is commonly a problem of childhood and adolescence. Adenoiditis occurs when there is inflammation of the adenoid tissue resulting from infection, allergies, or irritation from stomach acid. Adenoiditis rarely occurs on its own and is more often involved in a more extensive disease process such as adenotonsillitis, pharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, etc. Continual irritation may lead to adenoid hypertrophy which is responsible for many of the complications of adenoid disease. The role of homoeopathic medicines is very important because study shows remarkable improvement in patients suffering from adenoid hypertrophy. Out of 50 patients, 36 patients were markedly improved, 13 patients were improved and 1 patient didn’t show any improvement. The outcome was assessed every month. overall recovery was measured by size of adenoid glands and change in symptoms.
