Amazing Recovery at CARE Vizag
Mrs Urmila from Odisha is a shining example of the skill of CARE Vizag’s Department of Internal Medicine. She was suffering from diabetes and hypertension and was admitted at CARE Vizag with fever and severe rash all over the body, the result of a reaction to a drug she had taken for back pain.
Mrs Urmila’s entire upper body was covered with rashes and her condition was critical. She could barely even open her mouth. She scored 4 on the SCORTEN scale (SCORe of Toxic Epidermal Necrosis), which has a very high mortality rate. She was diagnosed with a severe form of toxic epidermonecrolysis and treated with medication and dressing. Gradually, she recovered and left the hospital in a stable condition. She came regularly for follow-up visits.
The photos, published with her permission, speak eloquently of her recovery and the care that she received.
