My friend's 8-month old (male) infant was just recovering from a bout of Chicken Pox, when he had internal bleeding visible as blue bruises all over his body. He was hospitalised and had to have a blood transfusion but the doctor has been unable to form a diagnosis to the cause. His symptoms are: An enlarged liver, High fever ranging from 102 to 104 degrees, Internal bleeding, Loss of appetite, his Haemoglobin count was halved (5.3) and his platelet count was found to be nearly double of what is considered the normal upper limit. The baby stabilized to some extent post the transfusion and is out of danger, but was in danger of imminent cardiac arrest. He got antibiotic shots too. Viral Infection was found but the cause is still not found. If anyone can help or has experienced something similar with their infant, please do respond! Thanks a ton, Aquariusgal.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
