Success story
April 2011

Veera Manikandan
7 years
Medical Problem
Intra abdominal Cysts

Case Background

Veera Manikandan is the third child of Mr. Velmurugan, a laborer in the match industry at Sivakasi. Velmurugan earns around INR 3000 a month and is the sole bread winner of his family. When he was 5 years old, Veera Manigandan was affected with viral fever and received treatment at a local clinic. However, there was no improvement in his health and the ailment went to a critical stage. His parents approached Mr.K.Pandiarajan, the MLA of Virudhunagar and one of the Trustees of Ekam. Mr. Pandiarajan referred the case to Mr. Krishnamurthy, one of the staff members in our foundation.

Ekam’s Involvement

Mr.Krishnamurthy spoke to the family members of Veera Manikandan and asked them to come over to Chennai for further treatment.  The child was admitted into Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and diagnosed with intra-abdominal cysts and lymphangiomas. Mesenteric cysts are estimated to occur in one out of every 20,000 pediatric admissions while retroperitoneal cysts are less common and more troublesome. The child received 20 days of hospitalization and medication in the hospital’s intensive care unit. Ekam sponsored the treatement for the child.

Current Status

Veeramanikandan has recovered completely and is currently living happily with his family.
