Katiana, a 5 year old girl, was born healthy but soon failed to make her developmental milestones. We performed a CT scan and diagnosed her with hydrocephalus, a diagnosis which would be very responsive to surgical treatment with placement of a shunt. Money was raised for her via crowdsourcing by Watsi.org and she was successfully treated by a local surgeon.
