Bone death : New post-COVID condition emerges

AVN has emerged as yet another debilitating condition after mucormycosis.

A new health complication arising from the treatment of COVID-19 has left the medical fraternity baffled after three confirmed cases of avascular necrosis (AVN) or death of bone tissues have been scientifically reported from Mumbai.
 
AVN has emerged as yet another debilitating condition after mucormycosis or black fungus affecting post-COVID patients.
 
According to a TOI report, doctors are worried that more cases are likely to appear in the next few months.
 
The common factor between mucormycosis and avascular necrosis is found to be the use of steroids, the only drug proven to help COVID-19 patients.
 
As of now, three young patients under the age of 40 developed avascular necrosis two months after being treated for COVID in Hinduja Hospital, Mahim.
