13 years old Amandeep Kaur again able to stand on her legs after removing tumor from back-bone
Amritsar: North India’s premier trauma, bone, joint replacement, plastic surgery & neuro surgery centre, Amandeep Hospitals & Clinics is famous for treating those critical cases, which no other hospital of the region is bale to treat. Thus it is giving new life to the patients well as saving the families also from getting ruined. Latest example in this series is Amandeep Kaur (13 Years), daughter of Natha Singh, resident of Gumanpura, Distt. Amritsar, who is a student of class 8th. She suffered from normal fever on the very next day of Dipawali festival. She was taken to local doctors for treatment but within next 2-3 days, her lower limb stopped working. Family approached even PGI, Chandigarh for the treatment but no one could diagnose her properly. Then she was brought to Amandeep Hospital, Amritsar for treatment where Dr. AA Mehra, Chief Neuro Surgeon, Amandeep Group deeply investigated the child & diagnosed that there is tumor in the backbone of the child & its roots were expanded to chest of the patient. It was mandatory to remove the tumor immediately as it was not only affecting lower limb but other body parts also. Successful surgery was performed by Dr. AA Mehra & now she is able to walk again on her legs. Her father said that they were not able to see the deteriorating condition of their daughter. She is still in her adolescent & whole life is still there. The whole family was very much upset with the deteriorating condition of their child. They tried here & there & at last, they visited Amandeep Hospital. Here Dr. Mehra successfully diagnosed & treated their daughter. The girl who forgot to laugh from last few months is now blooming like a flower. While talking to media persons in this regard, Dr. Mehra said that this was a very complicated surgery & anything was expected during the operation. First of all it was mandatory to diagnose the disease properly which no other hospital was able to do. When we diagnosed, we found that there is a big tumor in the backbone of the girl & its roots were extended to the chest of the patient. Surgery was very complicated but with the grace of almighty everything went on smoothly & now the girl is absolutely fine & within few days she will be able to run on her feet.
Dr. Mehra said, “Proper treatment is only possible when the disease is diagnosed properly & timely. People run after quacks & waste not only their money & time but after that when they run to a good hospital, in most of the cases, the disease is at its end stage. People should immediately consult any good hospital for treatment.”
Septoplasty and Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Patient had complaint of nasal obstruction, post nasal discharge and headache since 2 years. Septoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery was done. Left maxillary sinus was filled with polypodal mass.sample was sent for histopathological examination. Histopathology report was suggestive of fungal (mucormycosis) mass.
Patient was started with injection amphotericin b (lipososmal) and at regular intervals nasal endoscopy and debridement was done. After 25 days sample was taken from nasal cavity and sent for histopathological examination.no fungal hyphae was seen in the sample. Patient was discharged next day. Since then patient is on regular follow ups.
Rhinocerebral mucormycosis is a rare opportunistic infection of the sinuses, nasal passages, oral cavity, and brain caused by saprophytic fungi. The infection can rapidly result in death. Rhinocerebral mucormycosis commonly affects individuals with diabetes and those in immunocompromised states. Rhinocerebral mucormycosis carries a prognosis of high morbidity and mortality. Survival depends on the reversibility of underlying risk factors and early surgical intervention.
Rhinocerebral mucormycosis progresses rapidly and can result in carotid artery occlusion, cavernous sinus thrombosis, and cns infarction secondary to fungal thrombosis, leading to hemiparesis, hemiplegia, coma, and death. Other complications of rhinocerebral mucormycosis include cns hemorrhage, abscess, and cerebritis, as well as blindness and airway obstruction from head and neck infections.
No survivors of mucormycosis were reported before 1955 (amphotericin became available in the 1950s). Mucormycosis has a fulminantly fatal clinical pattern. The survival rates among patients with invasive sinus disease without cerebral involvement may be as high as 50-80%. If infection spreads to the brain, the case fatality rate can exceed 80%. Death may occur within 2 weeks if mucormycosis is not treated or is unsuccessfully treated.
The prognosis of mucormycosis may improve with rapid diagnosis; early management, including combined antifungal and surgical interventions; and reversal of underlying risk factors. One case series reported a survival rate of approximately 80% when both medical and surgical interventions were administered. The cause of death in many patients is mucormycosis itself rather than the progression of the underlying disease.
