Diagnostic Information
 
Final Diagnosis For Which Treatment Was Sought Including Patient's Actual Condition
Treatment was sought from the insured for neck pain. Ultimately, the patient was diagnosed with a Pancoast tumor in his lung by a different doctor.
Operation, Diagnostic, Or Treatment Procedure Rendered Causing The Injury
Dr. Arad examined the patient and reviewed x-rays in connection only with the patient's complaints of neck pain.
Diagnostic Code : 
Misdiagnosis Made, If Any, Of Patient's Actual Condition
Plaintiff alleges that the insured was somehow supposed to diagnose the Pancoast tumor in his lung, or at least order more diagnostics which would have led to earlier diagnosis of the tumor. In reality, there was no way the insured could have guessed what was going on in the patient's lung based on his exam and review of xrays in connection with the patient's neck pain.
Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
Plaintiff had a Pancoast tumor in his lung. It was unrelated to the neck pain the insured was asked to evaluate. The Pancoast tumor was the cause of the patient's eventual demise.
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Death.
