Naw Khu underwent a CT scan.

Naw Khu received a CT scan at Mae Sot Hospital. The results are critical for the medical team to plan for any further treatment for Naw Khu. The scan showed a malignant mass in her pelvic cavity that unfortunately has spread to her perianal region and to her urinary bladder. The doctor explained the future steps will be very difficult. She and her mother returned home after talking with the doctor and Mae Tao Clinic staff.

Naw Khu’s mother sadly said, “I would like her disease to be treated and I want her to be healthy.”

Naw Khu is a 18-month-old baby girl from Burma who lives with her parents and grandparents. Her mother wants her to become a medic when she grows older so that she could help people in her village.

About a month ago, Naw Khu started to have difficulty passing urine. Her parents took her to a hospital where she had the catheter inserted. Since then she has been living with the catheter on because whenever the catheter was removed she had difficulty. The family arrived at our partner hospital last week and Naw Khu received an ultrasound. The result revealed mass-like object which is pressing onto her bladder. Doctors now want Naw Khu to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Naw Khu’s CT scan and care, scheduled for December 9th.

Naw Khu’s father said, “We do not have money and could not speak Burmese well, so it was very difficult for us to go Yangon. We were very sad because we don’t have any money. I just cried. I want her to be healthy and I also want her to grow up healthy like other children.”
