Adnan was only 12 years old (September 2012) when he was diagnosed with a malignant tumour in the basal ganglia. His tumour compresses the left mesencephalon that controls eye movement, vision and hearing (MRI on 5 September 2012), causing him to have severe headaches with several impairments in vision, hearing, and motor ability. He had to quit school. He has no other option as surgery and radiation are not ideal as the risk of damaging vital nerves is high in his case. His father was desperate and decided to start ECCT for Adnan.
After using ECCT for a couple of months, Adnan's condition gradually improved, his vision and hearing returned. He later was able to walk, and started to be able to do normal activities and finally re-enter school.
After a year of usage, he stopped ECCT in September 2013, and his condition remained normal. However, in mid of 2014, he began to feel intense headaches again, his vision started blurred again and lost mobility. MRI showed an enlarged tumour mass. Its size reaches more than 10 cm filling almost the entire central part of the brain to most of its left brain (MRI, 6 September 2014).
He restarted ECCT, but this time the team had to redesign to reposition his helmet, so the electric field was more focused on the part of the centre of mass that is in the deepest part of the brain that is difficult for other waves to reach.
After 4 months, his legs are starting to stand again, and his vision and hearing are also improving. He still can't look back and remains colour-blind. But, his headache had almost not felt anymore.
MRI results after 6 months show the tumour mass has been significantly reduced and blocked brain fluid (hydrocephalus) has very much reduced as well.
MRI results (3 February 2017) show that the tumour mass is getting much smaller even though it does not fully disappear, leaving scar tissue behind.
10 years past now, and Adnan's condition remains healthy although his vision did not recover fully, but at least able to read and write messages in WhatsApp using a text-to-voice application to communicate with his friend and family. Adnan continues to use ECCT till today, 2022, to prevent his tumour from growing again.
Adnan在12岁（2012年9月）时被诊断出患有基底神经恶性肿瘤。他的肿瘤压迫控制眼球运动、视力和听力的左脑间膜（2012 年 9 月 5 日进行 MRI 检查），导致他出现严重头痛，视力、听力和运动能力受到多种损害。他不得不辍学。
