Apr 17 - Girl's Head Swells Like A Balloon: Runa Begum, Of India, Born With Hydrocephalus
 

 
imageimageimageimage
A young girl in India has such an extreme case of hydrocephalus that her head has swelled to an alarming size.

Runa Begum has had the condition -- in which cerebrospinal fluid collects in the skull -- since she was born, her mother, Fatima, told Reuters. Doctors in the Tripura region, where the family lives, have been unable to provide relief. Runa's father, Abdul Rehman, doesn't earn enough as a brick factory worker to pay for more medical help.

Dr. Peter Heydemann, a pediatric neurologist at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, told The Huffington Post that the girl could perhaps be treated with a shunt inserted to drain the fluid, but he expressed doubt whether any brain damage could be reversed. "Her brain has been under a fair bit of pressure," he said. "I wouldn't be surprised if the child was blind."

Heydemann suggested Runa (or Roona, as identified by some news outlets) might have hydranencephaly, in which the brain hemispheres are absent and the empty space is filled by cerebrospinal fluid.

Heydemann said he had never seen such an extreme case, but he added that the prominent veins on her scalp are a "common piece of this puzzle."

Gill Yaz, a health official for Shine, a British charity for hydrocephalus victims, told the Daily Mail that the shunt procedure takes just 30 minutes and that the shunts themselves cost between $300 and $1,200. But Rehman (or Rahman as he is referred to in the Mail) makes just $2.75 a day.

Dude in Columbus had this diesease his name was "Big Head Tony". Dude had function of his eyes and everything and he could drive. Dude had a lot of money and always had dope cars. Rumor was the government was paying him lots of money because they use to run all kinds of test on him and he was donating his body to them once he died. I think he died in the late
90s though. I hope they can find a way to help this lil girl.

did you not read the article? she can get a shunt to help bring down the size of her head. The costs range from $300-$1200, something the dude taking care of her cant afford since he makes a few dollars a day. use your brain? id suggest you take your own advice.

they wont know that until they bring down the swelling in her head you fu*king idiot. and even if the brain damage is irreversible, you dont think reducing the size of her head would improve her quality of life? Why dont you stick to topics you understand, like not tipping people cause you're a stupid prick.

Oh I forgot this is boxden where minimafiaaj has more knowledge on these subjects than a pediatric neurologist.

This kid's life revolves around hot topics

You dont have to be a pediatric neurologist to know, you cant tell if brain damage is permanent until the pressure on the brain is relieved. He said he doubts whether or not it can be reversed, not that it cant be.
