Like the corona, the black fungus has also started showing symptoms out of the ordinary. One such case came up in Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences. In this, by entering through the nose, the fungus reached the brain directly affecting the eyes and sinuses. This is the first case in the state, in which black fungus has been seen in the brain. However, the specialists of the institute successfully removed the fungus infection by performing difficult brain surgery, equivalent to a cricket ball.
This information was given by the Medical Superintendent of the Institute, Dr. Manish Mandal on Saturday. Dr. Manish Mandal told that the black fungus infection usually damages the eyes after entering through the nose. In the case of Anil Kumar, a resident of Jamui, the infection reached the brain directly from the nose. It has not caused any damage to the eyes. The Director of the Institute, Dr. NR Vishwas, thanked the team of the Department of Neuro Surgery, who carried out this rare successful operation, and encouraged them to do such excellent work.
what is the matter
Dr. Brajesh Kumar of the Neuro Surgery Department told that 60-year-old Anil Kumar, resident of Jamui, was having epilepsy-like seizures. He was falling unconscious again and again and his condition was getting serious. He had this problem for 15 days. Earlier he was getting treatment at home itself. When relatives brought him to IGIMS, it was found in the investigation that there is a black fungus infection in the brain. After this, it was decided that his surgery should be done at the earliest. After a three-hour-long operation, a large size black fungus has been removed from the brain with a cricket ball. The patient was suffering from epilepsy due to the formation of a web of fungus in the brain without damaging the eyes. After removing the fungus and more than 100 mg of pus, the doctors declared the patient out of danger.
spread rapidly to the brain
Dr. Brajesh Kumar told that the black fungus had entered the brain after touching the eyes slightly after the nose and sinuses. It spread rapidly in the brain. The fungus was bigger than a cricket ball. This made the surgery complicated. Removing the entire web of fungus was not less than a challenge, but our team made it happen after three hours of tireless effort.
