Discussion – Gynecomastia is a common endocrine disorder presenting as a benign enlargement of breasts in males. About 70% boys in the ages of 13-16 years have full breast development. Newborn and adolescent males frequently experience temporary gynecomastia due to the influence of maternal hormones and hormonal changes during puberty, respectively. The development of gynecomastia is usually associated with benign pubertal changes. The psoro-sycotic miasm activation leads to disturbances in the endocrine system leading to an increase in the levels of estrogens / androgens or even if the levels of estrogens and androgens are both appropriate but if the ratio is altered then the resultant presentation can be gynecomastia. In our case Graphitis not only helped in significant reduction of the sizes of breast tissue (as measured by comparing the chest circumference) but also normalized the abnormal semen report which was done as a routine for work-up of gynecomastia.
