Damascus Hospital diagnoses a rare disease, and the British Oxford magazine documents and publishes it

The British Oxford Medical Case Reports documented and published a rare scientific case that was diagnosed in the General Authority of the Damascus Hospital (Mujtahid) of a child with Thenvard Syndrome, a rare genetic disease that usually ends with self-amputation of limbs.

The case published in the journal is for a 6-year-old girl whose initial evaluation after admission to Damascus Hospital revealed the presence of  deep, non-healing ulcers on her lower extremities that progressed to spontaneous mutilation of her toes and distal phalanges.
