Kazakhstan's mother starts legal action after the hospital wrongly identifies her new baby as a boy
- Mother Kristina Bobkova, 24, originally called her her child Maxim seven months ago
- Two weeks after the birth of the baby in Kazakhstan, the child faded by the day
- Error led doctors to miss that she was suffering from a life-threatening condition
- Kristina had to ask a judge to change the baby's name to Anna
A mother went to court after a maternity clinic incorrectly identified her new baby as a boy – in a mistake that was almost fatal to the child.
The baby was named Maxim in the hospital, but doctors missed the child suffering from adrenogenital syndrome that led to enlarged sexual organs.
Mother Kristina Bobkova, 24, said that this error led medicalists to believe that the child was suffering from an acute 21-hydroxylase deficiency, a life-threatening condition.

The enlarged clitoris and vulva of the baby, caused by the rare condition, was incorrectly diagnosed as a penis, she said, and initially believed the doctors before doubting.
Two weeks after the birth of the baby – born in Kazakhstan – faded every day, and she rushed him to the hospital, the mother told KTK channel.
Only when the details of the case were sent to Russian specialists, the correct diagnosis was made and the girl was saved with the right medication.
Kristina, from Almaty, immediately renamed her baby Anna.
The child is now seven months old and her mother said she immediately renamed her Anna when she discovered the mistake
The girl now uses medication and is expected to undergo surgery when she is between 18 months and two years old
The child is now seven months old and her mother said: & # 39; She is a girl because of her laughter, behavior and even her screams.
& # 39; I have an older son and I clearly understand whether my child is a girl or a boy.
& # 39; She is totally like a girl, she only has an enlarged clitoris. & # 39;
But bureaucracy meant that Anna & # 39; s birth certificate says she is a boy and that there seems to be no easy way to change this crucial official document.
She had to go to court where a judge ordered a new birth certificate to be issued.
