India doctors remove 232 teeth from boy's mouth

Doctors in India have extracted 232 teeth from the mouth of a 17-year-old boy in a seven-hour operation.

 

Ashik Gavai was brought in with a swelling in his right jaw, Dr Sunanda Dhiware, head of Mumbai's JJ Hospital's dental department, told the BBC.

 

The teenager had been suffering for 18 months and travelled to the city from his village after local doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem.

 

Doctors have described his condition as "very rare" and "a world record".

'Small white pearls'

 

"Ashik's malaise was diagnosed as a complex composite odontoma where a single gum forms lots of teeth. It's a sort of benign tumour," Dr Dhiware said.

It was all smiles from the medical team after the operation
 

"At first, we couldn't cut it out so we had to use the basic chisel and hammer to take it out.

"Once we opened it, little pearl-like teeth started coming out, one-by-one. Initially, we were collecting them, they were really like small white pearls. But then we started to get tired. We counted 232 teeth," she added.

 

The surgery, conducted on Monday, involved two surgeons and two assistants. The team was led by Dr Vandana Thorawade who heads the hospital's ENT (ear, nose and throat) department. Ashik now has 28 teeth.

 

Describing Ashik's case as "very rare", Dr Dhiware said she had "not seen anything like this before in my 30-year career", but said she was "thrilled to get such an exciting case".

 

"According to medical literature available on the condition, it is known to affect the upper jaw and a maximum of 37 teeth have been extracted from the tumour in the past. But in Ashik's case, the tumour was found deep in the lower jaw and it had hundreds of teeth."

 

Ashik's father Suresh Gavai was quoted by the Mumbai Mirror as saying that his son complained of severe pain a month ago.

 

"I was worried that it may turn out to be cancer so I brought him to Mumbai," he said.

 

The teen is currently recovering in the hospital and has been put on a liquid diet of mainly coconut water and milk.

 

According to Dr. Vandana Thoravade, surgeon in the ENT department at J.J. Hospital, the operation could have cost as much as 250,000 rupees (about $4,000), which the Gavai family could not afford. The teen's father is a farm laborer who earns 150-200 rupees ($2-3) a day.

The government's Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee Arogya Yojana program -- which supports low income patients -- took care of the bill.

 

Gavai's doctors said the denticles likely started to form when the patient was six years old, but Gavai did not notice the abnormal teeth until a month ago, when his mouth began to swell.

The village doctors near his home in Buldhana District, about 500 km from Mumbai, were unable to treat Gavai's condition, and referred him to the Mumbai hospital.

 

Doctors say denticles are likely to grow again in Gavai's mouth, but probably not in such a large number.

What was your reaction when you first read the title?

 

What did you expect to actually read based on the title then what did you think after reading the article?

I sure didn't, I though this was going to be one of those Spoof articles you get goated into reading and believing it was real only to find out it was written by someone with a very good vivid imagination, It wasn't until i looked to see who has actually written the article and it was the BBC that's when it blew my mind.

 

I know he had to be in a LOT of pain having 232 teeth removed, My mouth hurt like hell for days just having my wisdom teeth removed i can't imagine the pain this poor kid is feeling (at least in his mouth elsewhere i can understand

One seventh of the world's population is in India. It's not racist, it's pure maths. Same can be said about China.

With his face on all kinds of numbing agents, I'm not surprised.

 

You see all kinds of horrific diseases and medical disasters in third-world countries. It's insane. If it happens in first-world countries, I don't hear about it a lot.

Kind of Sharkish when you come to think about it.
Tooth Fairy only buys baby teeth, he's seventeen.

I guess God does make mistakes ;( a real downer for the Believers...
