TOAST – A 15-year-old girl, Martina Carriero, died at the Perrino hospital in Brindisi, where she arrived with a severe headache. It is the second case in a few weeks after the death of another teenager, always in the same hospital, who died of fulminant myocarditis.
She had been operated on on October 25th. The girl went to the emergency room on October 22 showing a severe headache. She was first transferred to the pediatric ward and then, after a few days, to neurosurgery where she underwent an emergency operation due to the worsening of her condition. As confirmed by the ASL of Brindisi, the operation was “technically successful” but, during the stay in intensive care, she had a brain abscess again. An autopsy will be performed.
After the complaint presented by the family to the police, the Prosecutor of Brindisi has opened an investigation into the death of the 15-year-old which took place yesterday at the Perrino hospital in Brindisi. The judicial authority has ordered the seizure of the health documentation relating to the hospitalization of the minor. The girl had arrived in the emergency room on 22 October showing a severe headache, and then was first transferred to the pediatric ward and then, after a few days, to neurosurgery where she was operated on urgently due to the worsening of her condition due to a brain abscess.
