A 28 years old male nurse by profession was admitted to Orange City Hospital & Research Institute 2 months back with c/o fever, headache and piles since 3 days with K/o Sickle cell disease. He was admitted under care of Dr. Rajesh Atal, Sr. Critical Care Physician, OCHRI.  His initial investigations were suggestive of anemia and negative for malarial parasite. Inspite of antibiotics for 3-4 days, his fever and headache not subside. So Dr. Rajesh Atal advised CSF study, which was suggestive of Herpatise Encephalopathy. Dr. Vasant Dangra- Neurologist’s opinion was also sought and accordingly treatment was started. But in the meantime he started to have weakness in both lower limbs, gradually leading to paraparesis. Accordingly, physiotherapy and treatment protocol started and he was showing improvement.

He then started having loose motions and abdominal distension with fever, accordingly sigmoidoscopy was done which suggested Ulcerative proctosigmoiditis? Infective. Accordingly, treatment protocol was modified. After 10 days repeat sigmoidoscopy was done suggestive of Severe colitis. Hence diversion Ileostomy surgery was done to which he responded well and gradually fever and loose motions decreased. He was discharged on 01.06.2018 in stable condition with recovering paraplegia.

His provisional diagnosis was Sickle Cell Disease with Paraplegia (Recovering) with Urinary Retention with Necrotizing Colitis with Diversion Ileostomy with Gr II Internal Hemorrhoids with Herpatise Encephalomyelitis with related complications.

On this occasion Dr. Rajesh Atal stated that since this patient was himself a male nurse and thus understood the rational scientific explanations and roller coaster course of disease which affected his 4-5 organs. He stated that any physician can comprehend the complicated disease profile after perusing the cited diagnosis which affected more than 6 organ systems in body. He added that it is only because of relative’s utmost patience and unflinching faith in Orange City Hospital & Research Institute and its treating doctors; this patient was successfully treated and discharged after a prolonged 2 month stay. The relatives thanked TEAM OCHRI for the care and concern.

The therapy involves the controlled application of sub-atmospheric pressure to the local wound environment, using a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump. The use of this technique in wound management in OCHRI increased dramatically in this decade. NPWT appears to be even useful for diabetic ulcers, Bed Sores and management of the open abdomen surgery.” Dr. Rewanwar further added that, “NPWT promotes wound healing by applying a vacuum through a special sealed dressing. The continued vacuum draws out fluid from the wound and increases blood flow to the area. The vacuum may be applied continuously or intermittently, depending on the type of wound being treated and the clinical objectives.”
