Young boy with bright yellow tongue developed autoimmune disorder






A 12-year-old boy in Canada with a bright yellow tongue was diagnosed with a serious and rare autoimmune disorder that led to his immune system attacking and destroying its own red blood cells. This report was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. According to the report published in the journal, he experienced a sore throat, dark urine, abdominal pain and pale skin for several days. Doctors at the hospital in Toronto determined the boy had jaundice, a condition that usually leads to yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes. However, after running a few tests, the doctors determined the boy had anemia. Anemia is a condition in which the patient lacks enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the body’s tissues. But the report also said that the boy was infected with Epstein-Barr virus which is a common virus that usually infects people in childhood and has also been linked with a number of autoimmune conditions. For the boy, it is a rare autoimmune disorder in which a person’s immune system attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. While this condition is triggered by cold temperature, doctors suspect the boy contracted the disease due to an infection from Epstein-Barr virus. The boy’s treatment involved blood transfusion and the use of oral steroids for seven weeks to reduce immune system activity. The boy has recovered well after leaving the hospital and his tongue colour gradually returned to normal.
