Mom’s 10-Year-Old Daughter Dies Suddenly – After Doctors Fail to Pay Attention to Her Cold Sores
The worst nightmare for any parent is to watch their kids sick. This is the case of Briony Klingberg, a ten-year old girl from Australia who got sick and came down with a fever in January 2015. Briony’s mom got really worried and alarmed when her daughter stopped showing interest in food.
Briony’s mother, Bridget, took her to the hospital, but the doctors were not able to diagnose the little girl with anything. Moreover, they could not even think of any reason that could have been the cause of her state. The majority of doctors were seeing Briony’s state as a puzzle.
No one doubted that Briony was infected with the herpes simplex virus, one of the most dangerous diseases.
Briony could not stop vomiting at home and completely stopped eating and drinking due to the fact that she was not able to swallow. When her parents took Briony to the hospital, the doctor noticed some white ulcers in her throat, but did not know what the reason behind these ulcers was and thought it was just cold sores. Briony’s diagnosis was throat infection and she was prescribed with antibiotics therapy.
The doctors told Briony’s parents to take her home and then come back in a week.
Unfortunately, only after three days Briony had an organ dysfunction and died before the appointment. The reason for her death was the herpes virus that was not even discovered.
Briony’s mother had her heart broken and was really mad at the doctor because they did not treat her daughter properly. She was just a little sick girl who deserved to get the proper treatment and did not deserve to die.
Normally, a person who is sick enough needs to stay in, which was not the case of Briony, and this is why her parent were furious.
It was only after the little girl died when she was diagnosed with the herpes simplex virus. The doctor who noticed the ulcers on Briony’s throat claimed that he had previously seen the virus only on gums, tongue, and lips, but not on the back of the throat.
Now, every time he sees a child, the doctor says that he thinks of Briony and her disease and he always checks the throats of these kids.
Symptoms of The Virus Herpes Simplex Are:
- Lesions of the tongue
- Fever and high temperature
- Unexpected onset of diseases
- Reduced appetite
- Increased infant’s drooling that is the result of the inability to swallow
Infections of this type usually happen in childhood and are mainly transmitted by infected saliva and contact.
In 2014, there was another case of a baby who died from the same virus. This baby was kissed in the mouth by an infected person. This is why all parents must be really careful and protect their children from anything, including people who kiss them in the mouth, no matter if they are relatives or not.
