Medical Referral Case of Baby Makbel

 In the month of June 2015 abnormal physical and mental development has been observed on baby Makbel, (age 9 months, and sex male).  His mental and physical development retardness or slow growth was clearly noticed as abnormal compared with the other baby called Tadios. 

As soon as the care giver and the village nurse observed its abnormal physical and mental growth, he has been immediately taken to Gondar University Hospital for medical treatment. After the necessary medical examination had been taken place by GURH pediatric doctor, the baby was suspected of epileptic case due to puerperal problem; and finally Gondar University Hospital referred him to Addis Ababa for high level treatment, so that the baby was sent with his care giver to Addis Ababa Black Lion Hospital on June 14, 2015. 

After intensive medical examination had been taken place the pediatric doctor of the Black Lion Hospital proved that the right part of Makbel’s brain is missing by nature, instead the right side of his skull is filled with water like fluid. So that the baby is proved mentally abnormal and may be retarded, and its abnormal physical and mental development will continue as it is.  Now  (As of December 31st 2015) baby Makbel is 1 year and 3 months old baby, but he cannot move even his head properly so far his nick is always tilted to the left side direction of his shoulder and he is entirely dependent of its caregiver.

Currently Makbel is under strict medical follow up in Gondar University Hospital.
