Many are concerned about the poor infant who has huge head syndrome. BLACK

A small child from India had successful ѕᴜгɡeгу to treat a problem that саᴜѕed him to have the largest һeаd in the world.

After nearly four liters of fluid were removed, Mrityunjay Das, who has hydrocephalus and is only seven months old, had a fасe the size of a watermelon.

As a result, during the course of six weeks of treatment, the child’s ѕkᴜɩɩ diameter shrank by 26 cm, from 96 cm to 70 cm.

Record-breaker: Mrityunjay Das suffered from a rare condition known as hydrocephalus

Dr Dilip Parida, superintendent of the AIIMS hospital at Bhuwaneshwar, said: ‘The child was admitted with us since November 20. The head was containing almost 5.5 liters of fluid inside that.

‘Until now we have removed 3.7 liters of fluid by external ventricular drainage. Subsequently, we have placed a stunt inside baby head which is working perfectly.

‘The cognitive functions of the child have improved a lot, he is stable and has responded well to the treatment.’

Mother and child: The boy's parents, Kamalesh Das and Kavita, revealed that their family had been ostracised by neighbours in Ranpur, Nayagarhsince

However, the benefits will not only be physical.

The boy’s parents, Kamalesh Das and Kavita, revealed that their family had been ostracised by neighbours in Ranpur, Nayagarhsince, as a result of their son’s unusual appearance.

Kamalesh, 35, who works in Kolkata, said: ‘People would call our baby a ghost because of his unusual appearance.

‘As his head reduces to a normal size, the attitude of our neighbours and villagers will change. They will stop calling him derogatory names like giant head or ghost baby.’

Recovering: The youngster responded well to the treatment but will remain in hospital


Condition: In the past, hydrocephalus was sometimes referred to as ¿water on the brain¿ (the word hydrocephalus comes from the Greek words for water and head)


Urgent: If left untreated, it carries the risk of long-term mental and physical disabilities as a result of permanent brain damage


Medical team: The family, doctors and nurses helped alleviate the pressure on the boy's brain
