 BABY OF MAHADEVI, 8 weeks male baby from Gulbarga, Karnataka, India

The baby was screened at Indira Gandhi Institute of Child Health Centre for ROP. The baby was born in gestation period of 27 weeks with birth weight of 1280 gms with date of birth 02.10.2015. When screened on 30.10.2015; the fundus pictures of the baby showed NO Retinopathy of Prematurity. The baby was advised for close follow-up as chances of progression was present. When the baby was reviewed on 01.02.2016 (17 weeks) the fundus images showed Retinopathy of Prematurity in stage 2 in zone 2. The baby was weighing 4200 gms. The baby was advised for ROP laser management under sedation due to weight of the baby.

 Plan of treatment

 The Laser therapy was scheduled at IGICH in NICU unit. The availability of OT for laser was planned, anaesthetist availability dates were noted. After entire arrangements in-house laser machine was carried to IGICH, as our mobile unit was on tour as per the scheduled dates. As a result of concerted effort the baby underwent laser treatment & is doing well & ROP has regressed.
