Doctor's Side Of The Story Over The Death Of A First Class Student That Died At NYSC Camp In Kano

Every story has more than one side to it and the Doctors in this munched conversation try to exonerate themselves from what killed the Corps member in camp...Please read from the bottom up or just scroll.......

















So i went to check the meaning of purpuric and this is what i found,the photos accompanying this definition is HORRIBLE.

Description of Purpiric according to google..

The term 'purpura' describes a purplish discolouration of the skin produced by small bleeding vessels near the surface. Purpura may also occur in the mucous membranes, especially of the mouth and in the internal organs. Purpura is not a disease per se but is indicative of an underlying cause of bleeding.

When purpura spots are very small (<1 are="" as="" br="" bruising.="" called="" cm="" deeper="" diameter="" ecchymoses="" haemorrhages.="" in="" larger="" or="" petechiae="" petechial="" purpura="" referred="" they="" to="">


Purpura may occur with either normal platelet counts (non-thrombocytopenic purpuras) or decreased platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). Platelets help maintain the integrity of the capillary lining as well as being important in the clotting process. As a general rule, purpura indicates a problem of the platelet system whilst a deficiency of clotting factors will cause haematomas or haemarthrosis as in haemophilia. Nevertheless, clotting factor deficiency must be considered.

    2. I'm not a doctor but a pharmacist. When a person suffers from an anaphylactic reaction, the first thing you do is pump them with epinephrine to keep them alive. Hydrocortisone comes much later when they are stabilised.

    3. Shut up...what do you mean trade blame? You accuse people and you expect them not to reply? We Nigerians are so freaking used to speculations and analysiing stories when we don't even know half of the gospel truth...

    5. If it's not Epi that was first given, then the camp docs killed that girl. Forget all these got back and forth. They killed her. Kapish!!

  5. Am sorry but how do you say pupura and then mention allergic rashes from okiraka clothes???? Really????
    The best way to know the truth,is from the first hospital they refered her to, emergency room clerking should be proof as to what time she was brought in and in what condition.
    The victim also made a mistake of not stating any medical history(if there was one).
    Her so called gp,that has treated her before for some allergic reaction also has to attest to it.
    Stella, pupura is a skin lesion that manifest due to a haematologic disorder!!! Please how did it come up with allergic rash from used clothes???? It's not in anyway related,
    Doctors in house can expand on the discussion.

    1. CHW the relationship is a well known fact in medicine. You are not in the know obviously. Google Allergens and you will see that some clothing material are allergens, thus if the okirika happens to be one of such, then she's in trouble. Just like some people react to Gold, some do to silk and linen. Please don't be emphatic when you are not in the field. Also the antimalarial she took, there are reported cases of allergic reaction following administration of some intramuscular antimalarials. It would be great if we can get information on what she took, and of course we should take into consideration that she might have brought Fansidar/Amalar class of antimalarial on people's advice. Such situation is common even amongst Health care professionals

    2. Madam/oga, you have got to be kidding me!!!! Allergic reaction has a relationship to pupurA????? I just fainted???? Please Google or use your med textbook to prove your fact since I read the books upside down!!!!!
      Pupura is a heamatological condition,please please please how is wearing of okiraka/used clothes a trigger factor??? I will agree on meds/infection as trigger factors,that I know but used clothes????

    3. Meningococcal rash? Headaches, rash. Dont think they could have done much at d camp clinic. And stabilizing and referring was the best way forward. Unfortunately she passed, may her soul RIP. I pray God consoles her family

  17. It is well. I will say when they saw those symptoms, she should have been transferred. No need to stable anything. And preferably a doctor should have followed suit rather than the transfer and left her to die with a nurse watching till she's gone. And it is not by force to do nysc biko. When you know you are not strong for the environment at all. Make a move to go home not until they start that their yeye screening self. When I was in camp in kebbi, there was a lady that was seriously asthmatic. She presented herself well and mannered. And she went back home exactly that week. Like four days to camp opening. It's not by force to participate now. This said lady knew herself and what she might faced since she was treated previously and you don't think you will meet consultant in camp. I pity her and family but camp should be well prepared for biko. Get your drugs. I bought so many drugs to camp o plus malaria, diarrhoea, steroid plus the one wey dem no send me. A guy self at was selling remaining drugs when camp was about to close. That's how prepared people were.

  33. Hmmm
    Stella a medical doctor here in the U.K.
    FROM THE LITTLE I READ : I THINK WHAT THAT LADY HAD WAS MENINGOCOCCAL SEPTICEAMIA i.e. Severe form of meningitis with purpuric rashes ! It kills like wild fire !
    Another differential could be anaphylactic shock i.e. severe allergic reaction but from the recount of the history , I think the 1st is more likely as anaphylactic rashes are not usually purpuric !
    Stella both conditions are very life threatening and very fatal if urgent care is not given !
    I weep as I write as I see gross mismanagement in this case and hence , why the lady died!
    In meningococcal septicaemia : immediate parenteral antibiotic is needed and urgent transfer to a hospital that can manage the case .
    In anaphylaxis: parenteral adrenaline should given along side hydrocortisone , one need to give few times.
    I did not read that they did that !
    Both cases as possible differentials are ICU cases i.e. Intensive care cases are they are both dire emergencies !
    Stella the presence of the purpuric rashes means the whole system/organs are affected and so there will be malfunction of the organs including the clotting pathway which platelets are path of etc , not because there is an intrinsic platelets problem !
    The body function as one and once there is a problem in one part, if not taken care of , it can quickly affect the functions of the others.
    In conclusion , Nigeria medical system is very very scary as they are rarely able to diagnose and manage emergencies !
    Every one with serious emergency, all tend to die!
    My God, it's scary !
    Where as here, emergencies are the key defining our expertise as we do every thing and any thing to save those emergencies
    That is the essence of being a medical doctor : to save lives in emergencies and not prescribing medications for stable conditions !
    'Mbelede ka eji ama a true medics ''
    Am proud to be one and more proud that I can learn what human lives are worth outside Nigeria as it seems there is no value for human lives in Nigeria.
    Hoping to come back some day and give back, practice real medicine and save some lives for good.
    Until then Nigeria medical system is worse than kerg of gun powder waiting to be detonated !

    1. Heard of the story and anaphylactic shock came to my mind...

      When I served, the camp clinic was always understocked. The people awarded the contract to stock it with emergency drugs always tend to do away with the money and subsequently the clinic waits for philanthropists to donate drugs ...Just imagine..For a crowd of about 3000 be rest assured some people would come down with one or 2 things....I doubt if there was hydrocortisone or adrenaline in my camp when I served(anyway I spent only a week in camp)
      Even the nysc clinic that we managed in the nysc secretariat lacked drugs,we got pharmaceutical to donate drugs to us and we found it all stolen the next day.
      It's quite sad.
      May her soul RIP.

    2. Pls can you come back to Nigeria and practice so you can help them make accurate diagnosis???? Why did you leave Nigeria??You just sit down in ur air conditioned office, where you make diagnosis with help of high tech gadgets and write nonsense about Nigeria doctors. Do you even realize this happened in a camp clinic where it is difficult to see paracetamol, and you are talking of parenteral antibiotics??. How did you even arrive at that diagnosis when there was no fever and neck pain?? How many emergency rooms in Nigeria can boast of x-ray machine or CT scan machine.?? Or even electricity??.pls Nigerian health care workers are very hard working. Don't compare UK and Nigeria. Are u even sure there's a standby ambulance in that camp for referral? The delay could be from camp administration. It's a pity the girl died, but pls channel your anger to Nigerian govt.

    4. You are a liar ma. The pupuric rash of meningococcal septicaemia doesn't set in just like that, and as for anaphylactic shock which is closer to what she had, going by her allergic history ( viz a known asthmatic) . The only drawback here is the system, you need to see the few things the guys at camp clinic have to work with and the long list of logistics hitch they need to go through to refer,except for a few camps. Madam Doc. You can reply here, I'm on break.

    7. Dear Mr, Mrs Drs or should I say defence ministers !
      It's obvious yall not reading in between the lines and are neither observant : a key attribute of a medic!
      The write up said ' Nigerian Medical system' and not named dr or group of drs!
      It's a known fact that there are systematic failures in Nigeria and other developing countries alike and thus the medical sector/system not left out.
      It's a failured system!
      The Camp where thousands of youths are gathered should be at least be equipped enough to be able to manage and stabilise common emergencies ! Other wise it becomes too risk place !
      It's a known fact that the ambulance van here in the western countries is actually more equipped in both infrastures and man power to handle emergencies than most A&Es in Nigeria !
      Now, no one is saying that is your personal fault nor short comings , it's still part of a failing system !
      But employing defence mechanisms rather than looking at things critically and not trying to find ways of improvising ain't gonna help !
      I repeat most emergencies die in Nigeria and that is quite scary !
      Mind you, no one ranting here as I know no one personally !
      Just feeling so sad that a young life yet again was cut short due to gross inadequacies in the medical system !
      I remain a proud Medic and I hopefully plan to give back to my dear Failing country some day soon God helping me !
      STOP DEFENDING YOURSELVES AS THE POST WAS NEVER DIRECTED TO NEITHER OF YOU GUYS .
      RIP TO THE DEAD

    So a patient has Headaches; spreading Purpuric (not Urticarial) rash, Felt unwell and tired and one idiot Ignoramus is still commenting about waiting for Fever and Neck pain??
    So you want the Meningococcus to stand up and identify itself before you know that this unfortunate Lady died from Meningococcal Septicaemia??
    If there was no medication to hand,one can understand (not excuse) that but Hydrocortisone won't do Sh-t even if she had Anaphylaxis (as onset of action is in the order of hours).
    Established Meningococcaemia doesn't give up to 30mins to mess about.It is a TRUE Emergency.
    For any Dr out there reading this, this is a learning point for you !! No need for Fancy diagnoses.Just bang in the Broad spectrum AntiBiotics stat
    This is the diference between saving lives and sending o the local death house(Gen Hospital). May her soul RIP.

    3. I trained and practice in Nigeria, and when i saw the rash and hx of headaches i thought meningococcal sepsi but truth is most people wont make that as a first diagnosis reason being we are hammered with common things occur commonly, and i am sure the UK doctors would agree this is more common overthere than here, this may be due to few cases even making it to the ER or underreporting. However that being said even if they knew what it was or had a high suspicion of whatever the lady had being fatal out major problems remain, inadequate medications. Even when you see a patient stabilize and refer getting the ambulance is another issue. I am talking about district hospitals o. Wos d problem is legion and extends thru Africa. We just do our best, maintain high level of suspiscion and hope our medical system is revived !!! Sometimes really you are handicapped even prescribe the iv antibiotics and the patients can not afford it.

  52. This country is so poor in emergency preparedness. In fact there is nothing called emergency in our dear country. I am a nurse and I know the situations in our govt hospitals. I weep for the patients anytime they come in with emergencies.Apart from the fact that there are no drugs or equipments to combat the situation, the level of negligence and malpractice among health workers is alarming.
    I was a victim of the so called emergency some years ago. I was lying on the casualty couch for good three days without food and water hoping to go in for surgery anytime soon.Mind you, "Emergency" was boldly inscribed on my case file.
    Anyway, I agree with the UK doctor, lives are not valued in this country. May we never fall victims.

  54. It is not too much for the Nigerian government to have at least one experienced doctor in each NYSC camp for the 3 weeks orientation period. For crying out loud, the only experience the doctors in camp have is from their one year housemanship training so they really don't know much. A lot of trial and error is done and you can't blame them. Nigerian government should set their priorities right. These corpers are too important to be lost just like that. If they cannot afford experienced health care personnel in the clinics during the 3 weeks period, then they should scrap the scheme entirely instead of endangering innocent lives!
