The patient had been admitted to the Endocrine Department of Topiwala National Medical College and Nair Hospital by her parents at the age of 2 months. The parents had lost their elder child at the age of 18 months and weighing 22 kg. The only chance of survival for the patient was to perform laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
