Young woman dies after necrosis battle

Soth Rey, the 18-year-old young woman from Siem Reap who contracted a rare case of necrosis, a form of rapid cell degeneration, has died in the Sen Sok International University Hospital in Phnom Penh. Rey, who fell ill in December after an unknown Siem Reap doctor pulled several of her teeth after a sinus infection, lost the majority of her right cheek and nose from the illness. She was hospitalised in the capital for nearly a month after Yulia Khouri, a Phnom Penh resident, learned about her case and volunteered to cover the costs of her treatment.
