Doctors remove ‘largest’ kidney from 45 yr old
Surgeons have removed the world’s largest kidney weighing 2.75 kg from a 45-year-old patient, authorities at Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said on Tuesday. Subash Yadav (name changed) was diagnosed with chronic renal failure with severe pain in the abdomen, blood in urine and high fever. Little did he know that what was building inside his body was a kidney almost equivalent to the size of a baby. Normal kidneys weigh approximately 130 grams. The Guinness Book of World Records reports a kidney weighing 2.15 kg as the world’s largest, which was removed in Dhule, Maharashtra, in 2011. Due to severe infection in the kidneys, Yadav’s condition was deteriorating with every passing day.
