INDIA-CHILD-HEALTH-ILLNESS-HYDROCEPHALUS

Indian doctors perform surgery on 1-year old girl Roona Begum, suffering from hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid inside the skull that leads to swelling, at a hospital in Gurgaon on the outskirts of New Delhi on June 27, 2013. Indian doctors said June 27 they successfully carried out comprehensive reconstructive surgery on the skull of a baby suffering from a rare disorder that caused her head to nearly double in size. The four-hour-long surgery on the skull of one-year-old Roona Begum was carried out at a hospital near New Delhi where last month surgeons also drained fluid from the youngster's head in a life-saving operation.
