*This child was formerly on the Shared List*
From Oct 2007:
Annie was in good spirits when she arrived at the orphanage and medium nutrition. There was a white membrainform covering on her tunica cornea pellucida of both eyes and she had light perception. After admission we brought her to the ophthalmology of this hospital for treatment and expert diagnosis: keratomalacia. After returning to the institute we gave her oral medicine and eye drop treatment according to doctor’s suggestion. We sent her there for 3 more rechecks and the feedback from doctors was: poor treatment effect; scar formed and hard to be absorbed. Corneal transplantation should be scheduled when she is 5-6 years of age. So we stopped treatment according to doctors’ advice. Now she is 7 months and can roll, turn when she hears sounds. She stops crying when nannies held her up.
