Little Girl with Large Mass Relieved of Breathing Difficulty by Hadassah

An eight-year-old girl was having difficulty breathing and was scheduled for a bronchoscopy at the Hadassah Medical Center; Hadassah's physicians discovered that a large mass was the cause.

The little girl had lost consciousness while having an x-ray, which revealed a large mass. Within minutes, two anesthesiologists, three lung specialists, and an Intensive Care Unit specialist arrived at the hospital. A bronchoscopy was performed, the girl was stabilized, and subsequently sent for thoracic surgery, where a nonmalignant Shwannoma mass was successfully removed.
