Radio Diospi Suyana

A patient with pemphigus vulgaris

Our skin is a vital organ

Doña Susana is happy.  After 47 days intensive treatment of her skin blisters at the Hospital Diospi Suyana she is starting to recover.  2 weeks ago her skin resembled a crated landscape full of open wounds.  For everyone concerned the treatment was an extreme test of patience.  The daily dressing changes, antibiotics and steroids finally helped the patient turn onto the road to recovery.
If one suffers from this autoimmune disorder the lower skin layer of the epidermis dissolves.  It is a rare condition that mostly older people suffer from.

Our Peruvian doctor Dra Lincy Herreras and the patient’s husband delight with the patient that she is recovering.

Most of the wounds are starting to heal.  One skin part of many.
