Munjiu Alexa, 2 years



The history of the Munjiu family not only is unusual but also very sad. Pathologies like the one that we will describe do not cross Moldovan medical practice very often.

When the child was born in the Munjiu family, it took two weeks to establish child’s gender. The parents had to choose the name that would suit either a girl or a boy. It was a girl – Alexa. With time, the hormonal balance in Alexa’s body can change into masculine (e.g., the facial hair can start to grow). Alexa has no internal or external genitalia and has pathology in the development of the urinary system. Alexa’s diagnosis means that her bladder is located outside the body and it lacks an abdominal wall so urine does not hold and constantly spills out. As a result, the child suffers from the constant pyelonephritis (kidney inflammation) and endless wounds.

Alexa needs surgery. The surgery can be done at the Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgery Center in Serbia. The estimated cost is 12,000 Euros (about 214,000 Lei).

Alexa is 2 years old and that means two long years of non-stop treatment from the constant inflammation and two painful years of thinking about future of the child. We cannot imagine the hardship that this family is going through. But we can help – help send Alexa for a life-changing surgery and make her future more optimistic.

Diagnosis: bladder exstrophy, total epispadias
