The infectious section of the Silesian hospital has made another remarkable notch in its reputation. His specialists face a 40-year-old patient from Bruntál, who visited Uganda late in the summer, in addition to the memories of the most difficult form of malaria. She ends up in the infectious section of the Opava hospital and, after her treatment, returned to her home but had to return to the hospital fourteen days ago. Her brain probably affected the post-malignant neurological syndrome, which is peculiar, because the Czech Republic had not yet described a similar case. Doctors are great too. "The lady had to vaccinate us with yellow fever and jaundice before she left for Africa, and she repeatedly advised her to use anti-hellenic drugs, but refused to be in Africa for only ten days," recalls the head of infectious diseases, Petr Kümpel. If he had obeyed it, he would have caused a lot of problems, but he fell only in the villages of the jungle and the native villages, but it was enough for insect bites.
CAPACITY OF CULTIVATION
A few days after her return to the Czech Republic, fever and high fever suffered from it. He realized he could be malaria and headed straight to the Silesian hospital. It was malaria, and the most serious form of tropical malaria, which is directly dangerous to life. Each year, about two million people die in the world. "Due to the patient's well-being, we managed to defeat the disease quite quickly and in late September we were released home after the lethal antimalarial drugs," says Kümpel. But malaria did not stop. A few weeks later, her husband brought her husband to a hospital with disorientated mental illusions. "He came to an intensive care unit and went through a series of abortions that denied dengue fever, tingling, tickle encephalitis and other infections. When reading the literature on malaria, we met the information that there is post-malignant neurological syndrome may have just these manifestations.Our patient is probably the first in the country to suffer from this syndrome.It is essentially the patient's autoimmune system which can cause this condition in the body after malaria, "explains Kümpel.
No one wants it
Despite the initial desperate situation, fortunately women managed to reverse the unfavorable situation and are now fully oriented. If everything goes well, she could return to her homeland next week.
"I can not describe what I'm experiencing and some of the scenes were terrible I could not say what was true and what it was not I remember working with my oldest daughter in my hospital bed when it was not really in my office. I want to try it out to anyone, "says the unfortunate patient of her experiences." She works as a caregiver and is used to helping the sick. "The care of the medical staff team in Infectious Diseases can not be approved, the worst being apparently out there, but the pl QUESTIONS remains how the brain would respond to the withdrawal of the drug.
