Toddler refused laser treatment

24th February 2011

A two-year-old girl faces a lifetime of blindness and disfigurement after NHS West Sussex refused to fund life-changing laser surgery which would save her sight.

Zosia Knight was born with a small port wine stain birthmark beneath her right eye that has since spread across her face and now threatens her eyesight. Two specialist dermatologists have warned that if left untreated the mark will spread and cause her to become blind in one eye. But the trust has refused to fund the treatment.
