Successful surgery performed on a two-year old to treat a Complex Brain Tumor at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad

Date : July 13, 2016

Fortis Escorts Hospital Faridabad performed a complex surgery on a two-year old baby girl from Faridabad suffering from a large irregularly marginated solid cystic lesion in the brain. The team was led by Dr. Vikram Dua, Principal Consultant and Dr. Ashish Gupta, Principal Consultant- Department of Neuro Surgery & Spine, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad.

The patient, Baby Akshara, was suffering from seizure and hemiparesis or weakness of the left side of her body. An MRI test of her brain revealed a large irregularly marginated solid cystic lesion involving the right temporo-fronto-parietal lobe or cavity like regions. This condition is also accompanied with headaches and paralysis. A perilesional edema or swelling was tracked along the adjacent fronto-temporo-parietal white matter tracts with resultant significant midline shift of approx. 12.5 mm towards left side. A midline shift is a condition when the brain shifts from one side to the other. This shift can be fatal and the patient can lose their life within days. The lesion was anteriorly displacing the MIs segment of right middle cerebral artery and completely effacing the right sylvian fissure which divides the top brain from its bottom.

Dr. Ashish Gupta, Principal Consultant, Neuro Surgery & Spine said, “The baby required immediate surgical intervention to remove the tumor. Any delay in surgery could have led to a paralysis of the whole body and blindness, which could have been fatalistic for the baby. These are rare tumors and require multi-disciplinary approach in terms of neuro anaesthesia, neuro surgery and critical care. The baby tolerated the surgery and has responded well.”
