Classical homoeopathy can be included among the treatment options for congenital heterotopic ossification.
We present a case report of a seven‐year‐old girl suffering from severe congenital heterotopic ossification. The patient received treatment with individualized remedies according to the rules of Classical Homeopathy, demonstrating steady improvement in both her clinical condition and the radiological findings over the next 2 years.
Heterotopic ossification (HO) consists of the formation of bone tissue at extraskeletal anatomical sites at the expense of local tissues, including muscle and connective tissue.1 The formation of lamellar bone in soft tissues, where bone normally does not exist, is also called myositis ossificans. However, it would be more accurate to describe the involvement of skeletal muscles as myositis ossificans and the involvement of soft tissues in general as ectopic or heterotopic ossification.2 These bony masses can lead to chronic pain, joint ankylosis, pressure ulcers, venous thrombosis, and many other health complications.3
