Child 14 months old, Master Sunder, was brought to me for
The main complaints were of poor weight gain [5.5 kg]. Mentadevelopment
was very slow and there was no teething / talking.
When I saw the patient for the first time, he looked like a baby monkey.
His face, expressions and movements were like that of a smalbaby monkey.
He had plenty of hair alover his body +10. He had bushy eyebrows, long
eyelashes, a smalnose and thin drawn up legs - features evident of Hirsutism
The childs mother had a lot of tensions and worries during the pregnancy
of this child. The reason being that the mother came from a community
where a girhas to be given a heavy dowry, and so the mother of this child
wanted a male child. She would always be worried whether she would get
a boy or gir. Her sleep was disturbed 3+ and she had severe complaints
of acidity 3+ and vomiting 3+ during this period. She would often get
up worried at night and would dream that someone was harming her. She
felt neglected during pregnancy as there was not much of co-operation
from her husband.
(In the past, she had got an amniocentesis done and went
in for an abortion as it was a female child)
