>   Hi,
>         This is Peking University in China, a place those dreams of
> freedom and democracy. However, a young, 21-year old student
> has become very sick and is dying. The illness is very rare. Though
> they have tried, doctors at the best hospitals in Beijing cannot cure
> her; may do not even know what illness it is. So now we are asking
> the world -- can somebody help us?
>         Here is a description of the illness:
>         The young woman -- her name is Zhu Ling -- is a student in
> the chemistry department. On DEC. 5, 1994, Zhu Ling felt sick to
> her stomach. Three days later, her hair began to fall out and within
> two days she was completely bald. She entered the hospital, but
> doctors could not discover the season for her illness. However,
> after she was in the hospital for a month, she began to fell better
> and her hair grew back. Zhu Ling went back to school in February,
> but in March her legs began to ache severely, and she felt dizzy.
> She entered XieHe Hospital - Chinese most famous hospital. In
> early March and on March 15, her symptoms worsened. She Began
> to facial paralysis, central muscle of eye's paralysis, self-controlled
> respiration disappeared. So she was put on a respirator.
>         The doctors did many tests for many diseases(include anti-
> H2V, spinal cord puncture, NMR, immune system, chemical drug
> intoxication ANA,ENA,DSONA,ZG and Lyme), but all were
> negative, except for Lyme disease(ZGM(+)).
>         The doctors now think that it might be acute disseminated
> encephalomyelitis(ADEM) or lupus erythematosus(LE), but the
> data from the tests do not support this conclusion.
>         The doctors are now treating Zhu Ling with broad-spectrum
> antibiotic of cephalosporin, anti-virus drug, hormone, immun-
> oadjuvent, gamma globulin intravenous injection and have given
> her plasma exchange(PE) of 10,000 CCs. But Zhu Ling has not
> responded -- she reamers in a vegetative state, sustained by life
> support.
>         If anyone has heard of patients with similar symptoms -- or
> have any ideas as to what this illness could be, please contact us.
> We are Zhu Ling's friends and we are disparate to help her.
>         This is the first time that Chinese try to find help from
> Internet, please send back E-mail to us. We will send more crystal
> description of her illness to you.
>                                                         Thank you very much
