Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea (42), an accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, has been advised to undergo High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) scan of the temporal bone hospital authorities said. Temporal bone contains the middle and inner portions of the ear. Mukerjea who was admitted in the Critical Care Unit (CCU) of the JJ Hospital after she complained of twitching, weakness and pain on the left side of the face along with decreased hearing ability was discharged on Saturday night.

A doctor said that Mukerjea had undergone an MRI test of the brain and a neurologist would evaluate the report. Doctors from Neurology, ENT, Ophthalmology, Neurosu-rgery and Cardiology have examined Mukerjea.

 

Mukherjea was on Friday shifted to the state-run JJ Hospital from the Byculla women’s jail after she complained of low blood pressure, hospital authorities said. She was also admitted to the hospital last Saturday.  

After signs of suspected facial paralysis were spotted the treating doctors have asked for the required scans related to paralytic analysation. Her treating doctor, Dr Wiqar Shaikh, professor and unit head of medicine, said, “The patient’s complaints showed signs of paralysis on the left side of her face, which could be due to a stroke which she may have suffered earlier. However, to rule out all probabilities, a repeat all medical evaluation is prescribed to her.”

 

Medical superintendent Dr Sanjay Surase said, “As the patient is being evaluated our team has advised couple of tests for her, she has been admitted in CCU and has been subjected to routine blood and urine tests, and has been referred to both Cardiology (for drop in BP) and Neurology (for facial spasm and headache).”

“The patient’s complaints showed signs of paralysis, but it wasn’t revealed in medical evaluation, thus she was discharged,”said  Mr Surase.
