Mangaluru, Dec 8, 2015 : A 17 year old girl who was reportedly suffering from measles has died at a private hospital in Mangaluru on December 7, Monday.
The deceased Madhushree was the daughter of Devadas and Savitri couple from Kamaje, in B Mooda village of Bantwal taluk.
She was a II PUC Commerce student of Mount Carmel PU College of Modankaup.
It is learnt that Madhushree who had developed tiny blisters on her body nearly three months ago was initially treated by a local doctor. However, the blisters which were cured had reappeared all over her body recently following which she was admitted to a private hospital in Mangaluru.
She was then shifted to another hospital last Saturday but breathed her last within two days as she failed to respond to treatment.
The doctors who treated the girl however said medical tests could not confirm if she was suffering from small pox.
Madhushree has left behind her parents and sister.
