One-Year-Old Infant Paralysed Due To Rare Post-Covid Illness

Owing to a rare post-Covid disease, a one-year-old baby has developed "Hemiconvulsion-Hemiplegia-Epilepsy (HHE) syndrome" due to which her right side of the body has been paralyzed. Besides, she developed high fevers and had continuous medication infusions to keep her blood pressure stable. The infant was given intravenous immunoglobulins as well as steroids. However, the infant was moved from the ventilator and his health is improvising.
