Dear Homoeopathic Brethren,
As the “ Necessity is the Mother of All Inventions” so, since the time of Hahnemann need of indexing symptom has given rise to so many types as well as forms of repertories.

Here an attempt has been made to present an important speciality subject of medical field in form of repertory that is PAEDIATRICS. Boericke’s work has always been praised since it published. I tried to collect the rubrics related with paediatric complaints scattered throughout the Boericke repertory. I concentrated only on those rubrics which suggest to have special word as neonate, infant, child, etc.

I hope that it may be helpful to all of those who loves Boericke repertory. But be careful while using the clinical repertory because it doesn’t fit the whole man. If you don’t know the repertory well and select a remedy upon the clinical symptoms alone leads to higher range of failures.
