Rubrics in clipboard 2 are pathological rubrics for warts. If only these are considered Sep and Thuja seem to fare much better than Aur.So this case clearly shows that these are the mentals and generals which are crucial for case analysis and not the pathology.

This case goes, really, in favor of mental and emotional symptoms of patient. Althogh Aur Met has warts in its provings but in this case Aur Met was selected on basis of depressive state of patient.
