Muktamoni in stable condition in ICU
Muktamoni, an 11-year-old girl who has been suffering from a mysterious disease that resulted in a malignant growth on her right arm, remains in stable condition in the intensive care unit (ICU) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) after doctors operated twice on her arm. A team of specialist doctors of the DMCH burn and plastic surgery unit and anaesthesia department conducted the first operation on Saturday at 9:30am. She was taken to the operation theatre for the second time in a day due to excessive bleeding from her arm after the first surgery. “Muktamoni was taken to the operation theatre again because of excessive bleeding,” said Dr Hasan Imam, a resident surgeon of DMCH burn and plastic surgery unit. Dr Tanvir Ahmed, an assistant professor of the same unit, said the bleeding stopped after the second surgery, and Muktamoni’s condition is now stable. He added that there is no possibility of further bleeding.

Asked why she was taken to the ICU, Dr Tanvir said: “It would have been quite difficult for us to control the crowd of visitors had she been taken to the cabin. “This is because she has been kept in the ICU. Also, specialist doctors are always present in the unit.” The team of doctors, coordinated by Dr Samanta Lal Sen, also included incumbent Burn Unit Director Abul Kalam Azad. In reply to a text message of Dr Sen Friday night, Bangladesh National Cricket team’s Wicketkeeper and Test Captain Mushfiqur Rahim said: “Inshallah Sir, I saw that news in the TV, I will pray for my sister.” Last month, the DMCH doctors identified the mysterious illness afflicting Muktamoni as lymphatic malformation. The affliction has resulted in a malignant growth on Muktamoni’s right arm, rendering her bedridden for the last two years.
