Dilip Kumar admitted to hospital due to breathlessness

Last time he diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion

Legendary actor Dilip Kumar has been again admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of a city hospital after complaints of breathlessness as a "precautionary measure" yesterday.

It was only ten days since he was discharged. He was earlier admitted to the same hospital on June 6 due to episodes of breathlessness.

The 98-year-old actor has taken to the suburban Khar-based Hinduja Hospital, a non-COVID-19 facility and was admitted to the medical facility yesterday. He is now doing fine.

According to hospital source: "He was admitted yesterday during the day due to breathlessness. Given his age and recent hospitalisation, the family decided to take him to the hospital as a precautionary measure. He is fine. He is in the ICU so that the doctors can monitor him."

Last time he diagnosed with bilateral pleural effusion a build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs and underwent a successful pleural aspiration procedure. He was discharged after five days.
