VIJAYAWADA: Doctors at VIMHANS (Vijayawada Institute of Mental Health, Neuro & Allied Sciences) cured a 10-year-old girl suffering from a rare psychological disorder.

At a press conference, director of Vimhans Indla Rama Subba Reddy said that Gayatri, a native of Thotagudem, West Godavari district, suffered from a rare disorder where she felt stones coming out of her eyes.

“No medical journal has ever mentioned about this problem. We observed the girl for four days and treated her with psychological counselling. She is fine now,” he said.

He added that there is no name for this kind of disorder in medical terms, and said that they treated the girl for free as she came from a poor financial background.
