Vajpayee's condition is stable and showing improvement: AIIMS

"Vajpayee's condition is stable. He continues to show improvement and is being monitored by the team of doctors. He is admitted in Intensive Care Unit of Cardio-Thoracic Center at the hospital," AIIMS said.

Vajpayee was admitted to hospital on June 11 with a kidney tract infection, chest congestion, and low urine output.

He was immediately evaluated by doctors and put on injectable antibiotics.

Medical history

Vajpayee suffered a stroke in 2009

Vajpayee, a diabetic, has one functional kidney. He had suffered a stroke in 2009 that had weakened his cognitive abilities. Subsequently, he had developed dementia.

Vajpayee was thrice elected the Prime Minister between 1996 and 1999. He is the only non-Congress PM to have completed the full term of 5 years, from 1999-2004.

As his health deteriorated, he slowly withdrew himself from public life.
