Medical Triumph at IPGMER: 24-Year-Old Overcomes Rare Disease for Safe Delivery

Kolkata’s IPGMER doctors achieve a medical breakthrough, aiding a 24-year-old woman in her final pregnancy stages affected by the rare Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Did you know that GBS occurs globally, with an overall incidence rate of 1–2 cases per 100,000 people annually? It affects all age groups but is slightly more prevalent in males than in females.

This potentially fatal condition causes complete body paralysis and is particularly uncommon during pregnancy, with a higher risk of mortality.

The dedicated team at IPGMER, under the leadership of Dr. Subesha Basu Roy, played a crucial role in ensuring the woman’s recovery, ultimately leading to the delivery of a healthy baby

The success of the treatment, which involved addressing critical care and ventilation challenges,, highlights the expertise of doctors like Dr.Subhas Biswas, Dr.Atanu Biswas, Dr. Suchandra Mukherjee, Dr. Sugata Dasgupta, and Dr. Subesha Basu Roy.

The patient, Sabina Khatun, originally referred from Malda Medical College, was discharged a few days after the baby’s discharge, marking a significant victory over the rare syndrome

The family expressed gratitude for the exceptional care provided by the IPGMER team, emphasizing the financial relief compared to private hospitals. This heartening medical success reinforces the hospital’s commitment to saving lives in challenging circumstances.
