For a healed scalp

It all started quite harmlessly, with some dandruff in the hair and an itch. Nothing to worry about, thought Vorn Sopheara's parents. But the symptoms became increasingly severe, and the four-year-old scratched himself incessantly until sores appeared on his scalp. The constant scratching caused the sores to grow.


At the hospital in Siem Reap, our medical team diagnosed a scalp infection. The wounds were so large and extensive that they were unlikely to heal naturally. So the boy underwent surgery: The team removed skin from his thigh and transplanted it onto his head.


As a result of the operation, the boy can live a carefree life again.
