Dubai: A 2-year-old girl from UAE, who has a Pakistani passport, recently underwent a bone marrow transplant in the south Indian state of Kerala.

Kulsum, who is an Afghani but holds a Pakistani passport but based in UAE, underwent the procedure at Aster MIMS Hospital, Calicut, media reports said.

According to the healthcare group, this is the first successful bone marrow transplant performed on a child as young as Kulsum, reports Khaleej Times.

The young girl was diagnosed with congenital acute myeloid leukaemia.

Dr Azad Moopen, Chairman of Aster DM Healthcare, told Khaleej Times: "It is common for foreigners to seek medical treatment in Kerala. However, in this case, despite such complex circumstances, it is an outstanding example of the fact that Kerala's healthcare has gained global attention."
