Dzhavid is the younger brother of sixteen-year-old Nurlana, whose case report is also available on our website. These two fight against immunodeficiency from the very moment of their birth and through all the lifetime.
Dzhavid’s fate is cruelly similar to the fate of his elder sister. On the third week after he was born, Dzhavid started to suffer from watery stool, and when he was six months old, a suppurative inflammation of lymph nodes was discovered. In 1999, the child was diagnosed with chronic granulomatous disease in the Immunology Research Institute – the same diagnosis his sister had since 1995.
In 2002, three-year-old Dzhavid survived bilateral pneumonia. In the fall of 2003, he had a cervical lymph node swollen. In 2007, the boy started suffering from bloody liquid stool and was put in the Children’s Clinical Hospital #7, where he got an additional diagnosis of nonspecific ulcerative colitis, periproctitis and intestinal fistula.
In April 2011, Dzhavid got a bunch of new problems: enlarged submandibular lymph node, nausea, vomiting and headache.
As well as to his sister Nurlana, certain life-saving medicines are prescribed to Dzhavid for life. Amphotericin B is one of them, but unfortunately it’s very costly.
