Desun Hospital Successfully Treats a 50-Year-Old Female Patient with Myasthenia Crisis

Desun Hospital has successfully treated a rare case of myasthenia gravis crisis, shedding light on the critical nature of this neuromuscular disorder. The patient, a 50-year-old female, experienced a severe deterioration in her condition, necessitating immediate medical intervention.

Myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune disease affecting voluntary muscles, poses significant challenges to patients and healthcare providers alike. In this particular case, the patient exhibited symptoms including difficulty breathing, impaired head movement, and elevated carbon dioxide levels, indicating a myasthenia crisis. Such occurrences are rare, affecting only 100 out of 1,000,000 individuals.

Under the care of Desun Hospital’s medical team, led by Dr. Mohit Kharbanda, Critical Care specialist, the patient received prompt and comprehensive treatment. Intravenous immunoglobulin therapy was initiated, leading to a remarkable recovery over a 23-day hospitalization period, with 16 days requiring ventilation support. Despite challenges in weaning off ventilation, including the need for tracheostomy, the patient’s condition significantly improved. She went home walking and now she is able to to do her daily routine.
