MRI examination of the head showed that the child has a tumor in the head of 2.5 cm. several more examinations Were conducted, a meningioma (benign tumor) was diagnosed, and it is necessary to observe it.
But after two months, Adeline's eyes began to tremble (nystagmus), and her appetite disappeared. The MRI revealed that the tumor had doubled in size and was already 5 cm. the Eyes were constantly running horizontally and vertically. The girl could not concentrate her eyes, because the tumor was squeezing the eye nerves and the centers of the hypothalamus, which is responsible for appetite. After an online consultation with pediatric neurosurgeon Shlomi Constantini, who identified the type of tumor from MRI images, treatment was immediately started at the Ichilov clinic, Israel.
