Pics shows: The girl’s arm was found swollen in the form of a bangle; These shocking images show doctors discovering a rubber band growing into the flesh of a four-year-old girl’s arm. The girl nicknamed ‘Le Le’ stays with her grandparents, who did not realise that the otherwise innocent-looking elastic band had become imbedded in her right arm, with her flesh and skin quickly growing around it. The child from Linquan county in China’s Eastern Anhui Province was first taken to doctors in their native province in the beginning of the year, after her grandparents noticed a red "ring" appearing on her forearm. Doctors could not identify the condition, diagnosing it as an infection or allergies. Le Le’s mum and dad finally decided to take her to the Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine in Hangzhou, capital of neighbouring Zhejiang Province. Once there, Doctor Ye Wensong told them the "bangle-like" growth around her arm was likely caused by an elastic band. Le Le’s parents reportedly did not believe the doctor’s theory but agreed to let their daughter stay in the hospital for further analysis and treatment. Scans of her right arm revealed what appeared to be a foreign body under her flesh, and the rubber band was revealed during surgery shortly afterwards. Le Le is continuing her recovery at the hospital. Doctor Ye said he had only seen a similar case once before in his 20 years as a medic, suggesting that the child’s grandparents likely missed the fact that the girl had picked up an elastic band and worn it around her arm. "Some elders also like to tie thin red strings around children’s necks, wrists or fingers for good luck, but the practice comes with risks," Doctor Ye said. He added: "Thin strings and elastic bands can easily be concealed in the flaps of the child’s skin. Some young kids are still too young to talk, and the band goes unnoticed by their guardians."

FAJAR HEALTH — Seorang gadis cilik dari Linquan, Anhui, China, terpaksa dilarikan ke rumah sakit setelah kedua orangtuanya menyadari ada yang salah kondisi lengan putri mereka yang terlihat membengkak.

Lantaran terlambat mendapatkan pertolongan mendis, kondisinya ternyata memburuk. Gadis cilik 4 tahun itu pun dilarikan ke di Zhejiang University School of Medicine yang terletak di Hangzhou.

Menurut dokter Ye Wensing yang menangani kasus ini, pembengkakan yang terlihat melingkar itu disebabkan oleh karet gelang yang terlalu lama dikenakan. 

Saking lamanya, karet gelang yang dililitkan di lengan, tidak jauh dari sikut itu, perlahan menyatu dengan kulit sang pasien cilik.

Menurut Wensing yang sudah 20 tahun berprofesi sebagai dokter, ini adalah yang kasus kedua yang melibatkan karet gelang yang pernah ia temukan. 

Ia menduga, kakek dan nenek Le Le yang kesehariannya merawatnya, tidak menyadari akan keberadaan karet gelang yang dikenakan oleh cucu mereka.

“Mereka yang sudah sepuh biasanya kerap mengenakan benang tipis merah di leher anak-anak, pergelangan atau jemari sebagai tuah, meski praktek ini bukan tanpa resiko,” kata dokter Ye. 

“Benang tipis dan karet gelang sangat mudah bersembunyi di balik lipatan kulit anak-anak. Anak-anak juga masih terlalu kecil untuk berbicara dan kejadian seperti ini bisa saja terjadi di luar sepengetahuan keluarga mereka,” ungkapnya. 

Pasca, operasi, Kondisi Le Le dilaporkan membaik.(ruf/fajar)
