Insomnia case

Case 1:
The patient, a 9-year-old male child, was accepted through outpatient service due to one-day headache and emesis accompanied by 2-hour unconsciousness.
Through such lab examinations as cerebral CT and lumbar puncture, the patient was diagnosed as suffering from “severe viral encephalitis in combination with cardiac failure, respiratory failure, liver functional impairment, cardiac damage, and multiple organ failure”.
Active gamma globulin, hormone methylprednisolone impact therapy, respirator support, bedside hemodiafiltration (HDF), trophic nerve, and multi-organ support were proactively administered.
Half a month later, the patient turned to be conscious in spite of agraphia, dyskinesia, hearing and vision damage. However, with active bedside rehabilitation by the staff in Department of Rehabilitation and lasting anti-inflammation treatment, the patient was cured and discharged one month later.

 

Case 2:
The patient, a 10-month male infant, was admitted for having fever for 2 days and rash and blister over the whole body for 1 day.
He was preliminarily diagnosed as suffering from “severe polymorphic exudative erythema” which is a kind of immunity-related acute non-purulent inflammation characterized by diversified manifestations of skin mucosa. With it, the patient may reveal massive skin lesion and stripping accompanied with high fever, shiver, toxic shock, cardiac damage, and dyspnea.
After the active anti-infection and immunosuppressor treatment and delicate skin care in our hospital, the infant patient’s vital signs gradually became stable and got rid of the breathing machine with consciousness recovered. The skin lesion over the body stripped from the body and was substituted with new skin. The patient was discharged after being cured.
