Johnny Depp's Daughter -- Mystery Illness Revealed

3/8/2007 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny DeppNine days after Johnny Depp's 7-year-old daughter was rushed to a London hospital, the cause of Lily-Rose's mysterious ailment is being pinned on a rusty tack.

According to In Touch, "the wound was left untreated" and "blood poisoning developed. It has now spread through her body and has affected her vital organs."

While there have been several conflicting reports on the severity of Lily-Rose's condition, Depp's reps tell the AP that she is "doing much better." The actor has reportedly not left Lily-Rose's bedside since she was admitted to the hospital on February 28.

Bravo! You surmise correctly! JD's not going to waste his time reading any of these comments, good or bad; nor does he give a rip. What's in his heart and thoughts at this time is his daughter. Period. Oh, and to all those who have blasted his entire being, next time y'all think y'all are so perfect in every way imaginable, try walking on water!!!

Rusty tack? Didn't anyone notice the redline from blood poisoning? What were the adults around this child thinking? Too let the problem go that long is outrageous.

I hope that she will be ok. There is nothing as scary as having a seriously sick child. Suddenly Hollywood doesn't seem all that important. Get well soon, Lily-Rose

The french are dirty bitches anyway. Has anyone ever heard of a "french bath"? They might have found it sooner if the nanny was washing the kids every night. Poor thing.

If she is up to date on her immunizations, then it wouldn't be Tetanus,let's hope this isn't her problem, but something that can be minimized with appropriate IV fluids, rest, and antibiotics.
But to let it get that bad?? Man my kids have one little scratch and the whole neighborhood knows about it.

Tetanus can be prevented by vaccination.[4] The CDC recommends that adults receive a booster vaccine every ten years, and standard care in many places is to give the booster to any patient with a puncture wound who is uncertain of when he or she was last vaccinated, or if the patient has had fewer than 3 lifetime doses of the vaccine. The booster cannot prevent a potentially fatal case of tetanus from the current wound, as it can take up to two weeks for tetanus antibodies to form. In children under the age of seven, the tetanus vaccine is often administered as a combined vaccine, TDap or DTaP, which also includes vaccines against diphtheria and pertussis. For adults and children over seven, the Td vaccine (tetanus and diphtheria) is commonly used.[4]

I hope she get better real soon, and that it is wonderful that her father has put his movie on hold to be by her side day and night. The French may be dirty and so on and so on, but what about us we are in a country that hates us, and we have no place to put the critically wounded when they return from war and some of our guys fighting have had to buy there own gear for protection.

So please lets not judge someone we do not know the real circumstances on this as of yet, and she is 7 years old they sometimes feel that they can handle things themselves.

Get well little one. we will all be praying for you.

i'll bet she has mrsa which is a nasty antibiotic resistant staph infection. It is rampant everywhere but especially the UK.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Johnnie Depp and his family. Let's remember this is about a 7 year old little girl who is bedridden. Let's not place blame just yet, and focus on his daughter and her health

Kids get injuries all the time without telling their parents. Get a grip. I swear the idiots who comment here are more entertaining than the stories themselves.
