Irfa suffered from Wilson’s disease, a rare inherited disorder that causes copper to accumulate in the liver, brain and other vital organs.
Her parents made every effort to ensure their daughter received continuous medical therapy until she got cured. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a disruption in the supply of her medication. As a result, Irfa’s condition worsened and she started to experience Parkinson-like symptoms, dysarthria and liver damage.
A multi-disciplinary team at Global Hospital, Parel, gave her a thorough examination and decided that her best chance of survival was to undergo a liver transplant.
After establishing that Irfa’s mother was a compatible donor, the surgery successfully took place under the expert hands of the transplant team. We are happy that both mother and child were discharged with a smile on their faces after two weeks of recuperation in the hospital.
