Congenital Hypothyroidism is a leading preventable cause of both physical and mental retardation. Levothyroxine is the treatment of choice with regular follow-up until the growth of child is complete. A 41/2 months old baby was brought to the OPD with increased Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) level since birth. He also had recurrent respiratory tract infection. He was under thyronorm which was stopped before one week since there is no improvement. After case taking and repertorisation, Calcarea carbonicum was prescribed depending on the totality symptoms which showed reduction in TSH and improvement in symptomatology. This shows that individualised Homoeopathic medicine is useful in treatment of Congenital Hypothyroidism. This is a single case report and more systematic study should be carried out for the generalization of the result.
