Abandoned infant battles for life at AIIMS Trauma Centre

New Delhi, Thu, 26 Jan 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Jan 26 (ANI): An abandoned infant with severe head injuries is battling for life at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre in New Delhi for over a week.


The two-year-old infant was brought at the Trauma Centre here on January 18 by a 15-year-old teenaged girl, who later claimed to be her mother.


The infant has bite marks all over her body and multiple fractures.


The resident neurologist, Dr. Sumit Sinha, who is treating the infant, informed that the girl had several blood spots all over brain and was in need of immediate surgery.


"When she was brought over here she was in really bad shape, she had sustained injuries all over the body with major injuries to the head and it was severe head injury. When she was brought here she was in coma and when we conducted a CT scan, there were major blood spots all over her brain and we immediately operated on her," said Dr. Sinha.


Commenting on the condition of the girl, Dr. Sinha expressed concern stating that she only had a miserly 30 to 40 percent chance of survival after the damage sustained by her brain.


"She is still unconscious and we are not expecting that also. Her injuries were too severe but children recover quickly from head injuries as compared to grown-ups. I am of the opinion that, we are quite hopeful but the child is still in a critical condition," he added.


After undergoing the operation, the girl was in coma and has been placed on ventilator.


The doctor attending to her is of the opinion that a close relative or a family member of the infant had assaulted the child and did not rule out the possibility of sexual abuse.


"Some close relative of the child has abused her actually, it was physical abuse, maybe even sexual and mental abuse, whatever it is. She has severe head injuries, her arm is broken, her right collarbone is fractured and she has human bite marks on both her cheeks. The injuries are quite severe," Dr. Sinha said.


Family members of the infant are yet to be traced. (ANI)
