    Mysterious illness claims life of actress Butsaran

    Actress Butsaran “Numtarn The Star” Thongchio, 28, succumbed to the mysterious illness that suddenly struck her down and passed away in the early hours of Friday at Bangkok's Siriraj Hospital.

    Her film director father Wirote Thongchio confirmed the news in a Facebook post.


    “My daughter has passed away peacefully at 2.17am ... thank you everyone for caring for her. My heart is full of grief and sympathy for her (for having to go through such illness and departed),” he said in the post, which prompted a huge outpouring of grief from the Thai public, receiving 18,000 comments, 61,000 reactions and 22,000 shares.


    The family has reportedly allowed doctors at Siriraj to analyse exactly what happened to Butsaran in order to help prevent the same thing happening to anyone else in future.

    The polite way of saying it was a drugs overdose?

    ""We offer our condolences to the family. Until now, we still don't know what caused her ailment and where was the exact spot of bleeding, so we will study her information and previous medical records to find the answers," Prasit said."

    Cause of actress Butsaran's death remains mysteryNo commitment to provide any further details.

    But nonetheless surely a proper post mortem should be mandatory in the event of an unexplained death, and not something at the whim of family.

    Of course it should. Could even be foul play here.

    Not known to cause unexplained bleeding. Typically causes unexplained driving behavior.

    Apologies. My mistake. Blood in one of her lungs is correct with help from the wife.
    Wife actually showed me a couple articles before I saw the OP.

    Just noticed wiki has a write up in Thai now. Link here.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Rare form of TB killed singer
    26 JUN 2019

    A subtle form of tuberculosis sited behind the sinuses caused the rare and fatal bleeding of late 28-year-old singer Numtarn The Star 5, the management of Siriraj Hospital said on Wednesday. Prasit Watanapa, dean of the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, said doctors infiltrated a camera lens behind the sinuses of Butsaran Thongchiew, aka Numtarn The Star 5, and noticed an abnormal colouring of 0.5-1 centimetre of tissue there.

    The tissue was removed and it bled. Tests revealed she had had the rare tuberculosis behind her sinuses.The disease might not show symptoms, Dr Prasit said.

    In 2017, about 80,000 out of the 69 million Thai people were diagnosed with tuberculosis. He said 83% had the disease in their lungs and the other 17% had it elsewhere.

    Of the 17%, only 1% had the disease behind the sinuses. Worldwide, medical reports showed that about one-third of these patients showed no symptoms, Dr Prasit said. About 70% of the patients had swollen lymph nodes in their neck or tumours behind sinuses, he said.
