A 40 year old police constable, married, father of two children, came to me for getting treated for a peculiar sexual complaint. He said his penis was becoming smaller and smaller since a few months. Sexual passion is now diminished, difficulty in getting erections, organs are cold, and sexual enjoyment is lost. He was very anxious about this condition. I collected all his mentals, generals and particular symptoms, and lyco was selected as similimum after repertorization. But the case did not respond to lyco. During one of follow up consultations, he told me he was afraid of engaging in coition due to a peculiar problem: immediately after coition, he will start a very troublesome perspiring, which will last for hours. Whole dress and bed will become wet as if buckets of water has been poured over him. I considered this extraordinary perspiration as a peculiar uncommon symptom, and started searching for its appropriate rubric in repertory. I could locate this rubric in kent repertory::
1. [Kent]Perspiration : PROFUSE : Coition, after:- Agar.I could also notice that AGARICUS covered most of his sexual symptoms. AGARICUS was used, which completely cured his sexual complaints as well as the troublesome perspiration, within three months. Of course, lyco was used intercurrently, as it was his constitutional similimum.
