My World: The other side of the coin...

Life. It has many aspects. Some pretty. Some not so.

Sad, Fahim that an infant should have a collapsed lung and need a respirator. But hopefully this also means that there is hope in the medical care offered in the most modern hospitals built just in the last 20-30 years!

Is this a Mers infection?

I wish the precious child a speedy recovery!

Cem, Asher...yes it is unfortunate.

Asher, as a normal protocol, the child was placed in isolation and monitored.

Most medical literature ascribes normal levels of genetic inherited diseases or caused by genetic mutations based on an average of case findings. Such findings, while forming crucial baselines, however
need modifications for regional influences..if any.

My son is researching, as part of a presentation and paper, achondroplasia within this region and how it might/might not diverge from published statistical probability of its inheritance.

The patient of course is being managed by experts and expected to lead a ' normal ' life under the circumstances.

But research continues and genetic abnormalities' s detection and engineering is a different subject.

As I wrote sometime ago, we are all the same..but not all the same.
