Baby with ex­posed brain held at hospi­tal

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - NATIONAL NEWS - — Barack Oduor

A baby who was born with an ex­posed brain is still held at Sa­mari Med­i­cal Cen­tre over med­i­cal bill. Medics at the hospi­tal in Rodi Kopany said the baby is do­ing well de­spite the con­di­tion. The baby was born with a rare con­di­tion called meningo­cele, which has seen its brain pro­trude out of the skull. The par­ents say they do not have money to clear the cur­rent bill or to take the in­fant for op­er­a­tion in a bet­ter-equipped hospi­tal to cor­rect the de­fect.
