Both patients are undergoing treatment at Sir Gangaram Hospital in Delhi. Black fungus has been confirmed in them by biopsy.
So far, two rare cases of black fungus that have caught thousands of people in the country have been found in Delhi. Fungus has been found in the small intestine of two patients here. Both are undergoing treatment at Sir Gangaram Hospital. They have been confirmed to have black fungus by biopsy. Both patients are suffering from diabetes and both had corona infection. However, only one of these steroids was given.
In the cases found so far, the effect of black fungus was visible on the eyes and brain. This is the first time it has been found in the intestines. The first case is of 56-year-old Kumar. Kumar lives in Delhi. He has lost his wife and two family members due to Corona. He himself became positive with his wife. He barely cremated his wife because of a stomach ache.
Previously, there was a stomach ache due to gas.
Initially Kumar showed mild symptoms of corona. If he had pain in his stomach, he understood that it was happening due to gastritis or stress. He took the medicine of acidity by himself. This led to a delay of three days in starting the correct treatment. Finally he got Sir Ganga Ram Hospital examined in Kovid Emergency.
A CT scan revealed a hole in his small intestine. His condition has also deteriorated due to corona, which needs ventilator support. Dr. Ushast Dhir, Senior Consultant, Surgical Gastroenterology and Liver Transplantation Department at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, said that fungal disease was suspected due to ulceration in the jejunum (first part of small intestine) in the patient. His immediate antifungal treatment was started. We have sent a portion of the extracted intestine for biopsy.
Corrected by Corona, Black Fungs gripped
The second case is of 68-year-old Ijaz. His family was happy to learn that Ejaz had recovered from Corona. Later, he started to have mild abdominal pain. He was diabetic and was given steroids during treatment with Kovid. He did not have fever and the pain was also very mild. Even in the investigation, there was no problem in his bowel. A CT scan revealed this. Mucor mycosis in the small intestine of both patients was confirmed by biopsy.
