Nwet (BB) underwent a CT scan.

Nwet (BB)’s CT scan showed hydrocephalus, a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. She underwent two surgeries to repair the condition. Now, she is recovering and doing much better.

Her mother says, “I am happy to see my daughter is getting better. I hope that in the future, she will grows up well like other children.”

Nwet (BB) is a 23-day-old boy from Burma. He lives with his family in a village in Karen State, Burma.

When he was born, the nurses noticed a protrusion on back of his skull, a neurological condition called encephalocele. The protrusion is very sensitive.

Doctors want Nwet (BB) 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 his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $469 to cover the cost of Nwet (BB)’s CT scan and care, scheduled for January 13.

“We would like our son to become a doctor when he grows up,” says Nwet Yee, his mother.
