Baby Falak's brain infection starts subsiding
Doctors at AIIMS are waiting for the infection to come down further to conduct another life saving surgery on her.
New Delhi: Two-year-old Falak on Friday showed some signs of improvement with doctors saying the infection in her brain has started subsiding. Doctors are waiting for the infection to come down further to conduct another life saving surgery on her.
"Finally the infection in her brain is receding. The sample culture of the brain on Friday showed no infection. If similar results come forth in the next couple of days then we can plan to conduct the shunt surgery on her," said AIIMS neurosurgeon Deepak Agarwal, who has been treating the girl since January 18.
"Since she cannot breathe on her own we have kept her on ventilator support. She is still critical but stable," he said.
Doctors are, however, not hopeful of Falak leading a normal life even after she recovers from her injuries. "The infection in her brain has overstayed. It must have affected parts of her brain and this might in turn deprive her of a normal life in future."
On February 14, Munni, a 22-year-old woman who claimed to be her mother, visited her for the first time at the AIIMS Trauma Centre.
Falak was brought to the hospital on January 18 with severe head injuries, broken arms, bite marks all over her body and cheeks branded with hot iron.
Doctors had conducted a fourth life saving surgery on Falak on Tuesday as an alternative attempt to contain the brain infection.
