Surgery of rare skin condition performed in NMC


BY OUR CORRESPONDENT,Nepalgunj, Jan. 29Dr. Binod Karna, a plastic surgeon of Nepalgunj Medical College (NMC), has successfully operated the facial skin covered with black moles of a girl. 

Fuljaha Kabadia, a 10-year-old girl from Janaki Rural Municipality-1 in Banke district, is from a very poor family. Dr. Karna performed two rounds of complex surgery free of cost.

Stating that more than half of the girl's face at the left side was covered in black moles, Dr. Karna said that the face was covered with new skin after the surgery. 

Dr. Karna said that her face will be clear only after three rounds of surgery and the last round of surgery will also be completed within the few days.

The girl was diagnosed with Nevus Pigmentosus et Pilosus, said Dr. Karna and added that a surgery called tumor excision and split skin graft was carried out. 

"We will make a new face by removing the entire moles in three phases," he said, adding, "We had the first phase surgery a few days ago and today we have also done the second phase surgery free of cost." 

Her parents had brought the girl to Nepalgunj Medical College a few days ago for treatment. 

Since more money is required for additional surgeries, Dr. Karna also asked the helping hands to put a smile on Fuljaha's face. 

Dr. Karna said that although the surgery was done free of cost, money would be spent on medicines and so appeal was made for some help. 

The girl's father Saizad Kabadia expressed his gratitude to the surgeon for making his daughter's face beautiful.

"I am thankful to Dr. Karna, because of whom my daughter can live like any other girl now," Kabadia expressed his happiness.
