The doctors in Pakistan are mystified by the case of two brothers as the sun set they lose their energy and become paralysed, who have come to be known as the ‘solar kids’. During the day, Abdul Rasheed and Shoaib Ahmed, 9 and 13, are like any other brothers who laugh and play together. But as soon as the sun goes down they collapse into a vegetative state – completely paralysed and unable to talk.
Javed Akram, a professor of medicine at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences, told The Associated Press on Thursday that he had no idea what was causing the symptoms.
The brothers are undergoing extensive medical testing in the capital, Islamabad, and samples of their blood have been sent to overseas specialists for further examination! via – timesofindia.
