New Delhi (PTI): Former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, currently undergoing treatment at an Army Hospital in New Delhifor a skin ailment, is likely to be discharged in a day or two.
Suffering from eczema, the 77-year-old missile scientist was admitted to the AHR&R on Sunday.
Commandant of the Army Hospital Research and Referral (AHR&R) Lieutenant General O.P. Mathew said Kalam, who was admitted for a routine check up, will be discharged either on Friday or Saturday.
Hospital sources said since Kalam was diabetic, skin infection had aggravated last week, which resulted in his admission to the hospital.
"His insulin level has been checked and he has undergone a complete health check-up. His diabetic condition was responsible for spreading of his infection," the sources said.
Meanwhile, President Pratibha Patil, who is in Hyderabad, sent a bouquet to Kalam and wished him speedy recovery.
