Chronic neurological condition…

A 36-year-old patient from Oman was admitted to Wockhardt Hospitals, India with complaints of head heaviness, weakness, tremors in both upper limbs and lower limbs and was unable to walk without support for the past one to two years. He had a history of constipation for the past three days.

On admission, all baseline investigations were done including sonography, urinary bladder, and kidney which showed cholelithiasis (Cholelithiasis or gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder) and there were also significant changes in the kidneys with gross hydronephrosis and hydro ureter thickening of the urinary bladder. Dr. Prashant Makhija – Neurologist at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai was also involved in the treatment, and he advised physiotherapy and speech therapy as well as an MRI brain and spine. The patient was under the treatment of Dr. Chandan Chaudhary, a Nephrologist at the Wockhardt Hospitals, and he diagnosed the patient with an uro genic bladder also known as an overactive bladder with secondary vesicoureteral reflex which could be related to his chronic kidney disease.
