Father of a 6-year-old in India Blames AIIMS for His Daughter’s Missing Kidneys

All India Institute of Medical Sciences, (AIIMS) New Delhi, India has constituted a committee of senior professors to probe into the case of a father of a 6-year-old girl complaining that the doctors have removed both her kidneys during surgery.

Pavan Kumar, from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, says his daughter has been on dialysis since March 14, 2015. He had come to AIIMS last year with the child, who had a problem in her left kidney.


A scan was taken, Kumar says, and the test report said no kidney was visible. "I then asked the doctor who, however, did not answer my queries properly. I tried speaking to the AIIMS administration failing which I approached the Hauz Khas police," he said.

He has filed a complaint with the Hauz Khas police. According to the first test report of AIIMS dated December 8, 2014, the right kidney was in good condition. The report stated: "There is a large photopenia noted left renal fossa which does not show any tracer accumulation in early as well as delayed static images while the right kidney appears normal in size, shape and function."

"The allegations made by the patient's father are of serious nature. A high-powered committee of senior professors has been constituted to probe the matter and clear the issues. The committee already held a meeting on May 20, 2015 and will be again meeting this week and then submit a report to AIIMS administration," said a senior doctor at AIIMS.
