Roona whose plight captured international sympathy, has battled through several life-saving surgical procedures which saw doctors at a hospital drain fluid from her head and dramatically reduce the size of her skull. Doctors have discharged a one-year-old Indian baby from hospital after nearly four months of treatment and surgeries to correct a rare disorder that caused her head to nearly double in size.
