For first time, 27 weeks old fetus suffering from huge lung mass successfully treated at AIIMS Delhi
For the first time in India, the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi received a referral of a 27-week old fetus suffering from Broncho pulmonary Sequestration (BPS). The fetus had a large lung mass which was causing a collection of fluid in the chest, leading to compression of the heart and lungs.
BPS is a rare birth defect in which an abnormal mass of non functioning lung tissue forms during prenatal development. It can form outside (extralobar) or inside (intralobar) the lungs but is not connected directly to the airways.
