New lease of life for baby with acute leukemia

Must read

A two-year-old baby was given a new lease of life by the doctors of American Oncology Institute (AOI) in Kanuru, Vijayawada. He had been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
The baby was presented with complaints of persistent fever and breathlessness. The initial evaluations revealed an alarmingly high white blood cell count (WBC), low platelet count, and anaemia, sparking immediate concern. Further diagnostic tests, including bone marrow studies, confirmed a high-risk diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a form of blood cancer that primarily affects children.
Under the expert guidance of Dr Sai Krishna Kolluru, Medical Oncologist, the baby was promptly admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and a rigorous course of treatment was started. Over the span of three months, the baby was under intensive chemotherapy, administered by the highly specialised team at AOI Vijayawada, all the while under close monitoring to manage and mitigate the side-effects and complications associated with such a demanding treatment protocol.
In an astonishing turn of events, within just one month of dedicated treatment, the disease was under control, leading to complete remission. The child has now successfully completed the treatment.
