The girl weighed just 10 kg on admission
After 4 weeks of medical care, a healthy girl was discharged
Doctors performed a rare surgery on this malnourished child
Hyderabad: Ankura Hospitals, a super specialty Hospital chain dedicated to Women and Children in the state of Telangana & Andhra Pradesh, with 10 Centers in Hyderabad, Khammam & Tirupati, in association with Sood Charity Foundation has successfully managed & cured a severely malnourished baby girl suffering from old burns and anemia.
Sharing the details Medical Director Dr.Srinidhi T at Ankura Hospitals, LB Nagar said “ when Afeefa Maryum a 2 ½ years old girl, was admitted to our hospital she had a Chronic nonhealing wound with intermittent bleeding and Severe anemia with malnutrition. She was apparently asymptomatic till 1 year back when hot oil accidentally fell over her left tempers – parietal region, left hand, nape of the neck, and upper back of the trunk. She was immediately taken to a local hospital where collagen was applied (the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues, widely used in purified form for cosmetic surgical treatments) and was discharged within a week. Post-discharge, the child developed scalds over the left side of the scalp area and was again admitted to the same hospital when collagen was applied over the left side scalp & nape of the neck, for the 2nd time. The child didn’t receive sufficient diet & nutrients leading to malnourishment.
The parents of the child were distraught seeing their girl’s condition but had no money for further treatment. When they contacted Sood Charity Foundation for help with the treatment, actor Sonu Sood recommended Ankura Hospital For Women & Children. When the child was admitted to Ankura for further evaluation & management, the situation was critical and challenging due to the low weight and given her medical conditions.
24/7 expert Nursing care and specialist doctor team services led by Dr.Hari Kiran was rendered to the baby as the initial few weeks are crucial for nutrition, maturation of lungs & brain, and for establishing feeds. 4 weeks of special care by the entire medical team who spent several sleepless nights in managing the baby along with access to the advanced equipment, standardized treatment protocols, key medical intervention & procedure helped the baby to survive.”.
