Surgeons remove 250 gm tumour from tribal's eye in AP
Visakhapatnam, May 18 (UNI) In a rare and complicated surgery on a tribal patient, doctors removed a tumour weighing 250 gm from his eye at the Government Regional Eye Hospital here.
Briefing presspersons here yesterday, Hospital Superintendent V Narasinga Rao said G Gungulu had gone blind in right eye two years ago and was suffering from swelling and protrusion in the affected eye.
A CT scan on the 30-year-old patient showed the tumour growing towards the brain, totally eroding the eyeball.
Mr Gungulu was anaemic at the time of admission to the hospital and required three bottles of blood transfusion at intervals to improve his health before the surgery was performed by a team of specialists, he said.
