The doctors of Hyderabad have shown such work that they are being praised everywhere. Doctors at Hyderabad’s Kamineni Hospital performed a rare surgery on a 3-year-old girl and saved her life. The best part is that the baby’s surgery was successful. For this, a team of doctors worked very closely and operated the child. In fact, the baby had a rare disease called Gelastic Seizures, which occurs in only one in every 200,000 babies. Doctors in India do not even have much information about this disease.
The girl was suffering from a rare disease
The 3-year-old girl was suffering from a rare disease called Gelastic Seizures. In this disease, the patient laughs without any real reason or condition. As the disease progresses, it turns into seizures and can lead to the death of the patient. Glastic seizures are usually present in childhood, even in the neonatal period. Studies show that these are very rare and only one in every 200,000 children suffers from this abnormality. The parents of the girl visited many hospitals to get rid of this disease, but with the increasing time, the visits of the girl were increasing. Earlier there was a seizure once in a month, but now the girl started having seizures every minute 5-6 times in a day and many times.
