Medical records detail issues Frisco boy had from young age

Posted: Updated:

The family of a Frisco boy found dead in their home last month got some of the boy's medical records Monday from The Mayo Clinic and they detail issues from a young age for the child.

Pallavi Dhawan has been charged with the murder of her son, Arnav, 10. The family has said the boy had medical problems and records could help show she didn't murder her son.

The Dhawan's and their attorney have been trying to obtain hundreds of pages of records from Frisco police, but the agency hasn't turned anything over.

Monday's records from The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota show the boy was seen at the clinic in Dec. 2003 when he was eight-months-old. The records describe a "complicated pregnancy" because of the mother's thyroid issues and treatment.

The records also indicate the boy's head circumference was "below what is should be" and there was concerns with his brain development.

"He did in fact have a brain cyst," said family attorney David Finn. "There were concerns that this could trigger seizures."

Finn was in a Collin County court last week to force Frisco police to turn over all of the young boy's medical records. Prosecutors said the documents were with the medical examiner and making a copy at this point would interfere with the investigation.

The judge hearing the case indicated he will reach a decision on the records sometime this week. Pallavi Dhawan is presently out of jail on $150,000 bond.
