Mohammed Rehan, A 3-year-old boy was suffering from breathlessness and a tight chest for nearly one year. Poor parents couldn't know the exact reason despite going to several doctors. The doctors gave them some medication, but none worked. At last, they came to the KIMS hospital, Kurnool. There, the doctors diagnosed rare lung cancer. Solla Uddin and Shahida Banu of Tadipatri of Anantapur district were very poor. Solla Uddin works as a school bus driver. They brought their son Rehan to KIMS hospital, Kurnool with a lot of hope. The boy was having respiratory problems. Consultant pediatric surgeon

 

Dr M Sreekanth Babu and his team examined the boy. The CT – guided biopsy has shown that the boy is suffering from Pleuropulmonary Blastoma, a rare kind of cancer.  Rehan is having a right upper lobe mass involving deeper structures. So, the doctors decided to surgically remove the tumour. With the right upper lobectomy, the entire tumour was removed and again sent for a final biopsy.  The result has shown a more serious type of cancer, Lung lymphoma (cancerous condition) associated with Ebstein Barr virus which is a rare one. It is a rare Lymphoproliferative Disorder – involves malignant B-cells & reactive, non-malignant T-cells. The present disease is only 6% of all pediatric cancers. Considering all these conditions, doctors advised them to undergo chemotherapy too. Surgery and other procedures are costly affairs. But, as the parents are of poor background, the complete treatment was done completely free under the Aarogyasri scheme. A team of doctors and other supporting medical staff participated in the procedure.

 

As there is a chance of recurrence of cancer anywhere in the body, parents are advised to take complete care of the boy. Whenever they find something unusual, they should consult a doctor immediately, said Dr Sreekanth Babu.
