Start of care
Julienne lives with her parents and her five brothers and sisters. Following an accident, their dad lost his job, leaving the family in a very precarious situation. When we met Julienne, at seven weeks old, she weighed 2.6 kg and was then in a situation of undernutrition. She was also suffering from severe malaria, for which she was admitted to the hospital. She was hospitalized in Tsévié for 2 weeks, until she was cured of malaria and reached a safe weight for her age.

Julienne is slowly gaining weight, but is still in a situation of undernutrition. She weighs 5.50 kg at the age of 5 and a half months. We continue to support her through the donation of artificial milk.

We received the results of the X-ray we had done for Julienne, as she presented expiratory wheezes (often present during an asthma attack). The X-ray did not reveal anything abnormal, indicating that her coughing and wheezing were due to an asthma episode. We explained to her mom how to identify the signs and gave her a treatment to use in the event of an asthma episode.

Julienne was at the center with expiratory wheezes. We treated her with corticoids and we are now waiting for a chest x-ray to identify the cause.
