Seven-month-old Lemicah Faith Arendze, a girl from Delft diagnosed with a very rare case of Hydrocephalus, has died after the medics attempted to cure her.
Due to the illness, Lemicah’s head started to accumulate a large portion of cerebrospinal fluid, growing abnormally large. Its circumference at some point reached an enormous 96cm, but the family of the young angel had no money for the much-needed head reduction surgery.
Daily Voice, a local newspaper, shared the girl’s tragic story with the public and Lemicah’s parents finally received the necessary funds. While the operation had gone completely well, the shunt placed inside her head later caused an infection.
“Lemicah developed an infection due to the shunt, which was affecting her spine,” Rozanne Arendze, the baby’s mother, explained.
The taken measures did not help the child and she died at Delft Day Hospital on Tuesday.
