Judge rules child will not be treated for cancer

01 September 2016, 15:27

Perth - An Australian judge has ruled against a hospital in favour of a 6-year-old cancer patient's parents who want their son to die without further potentially life-saving treatment.

Family Court Justice Richard O'Brien ruled on Thursday that Oshin Kiszko's best interests would be served by palliative care for a rare brain cancer known as medulloblastoma.

The boy was diagnosed with a malignant tumour last year, but his parents, Angela Kiszko and Adrian Strachan, opposed the treatment recommended by doctors due to the risk of severe side effects, which include permanent intellectual impairment.

The Princess Margaret Hospital in Perth obtained a court order in March that forced Oshin to receive chemotherapy.

The case was back in court last week after the hospital applied for further treatment, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
