Appendicitis Misdiagnosis

Certain ailments can prove to be very tragic if misdiagnosed by a doctor or other medical professional. While there are a number of diseases and disorders which will only result in slightly prolonged discomfort if misdiagnosed, the misdiagnosis of others can result in serious injury or death. One such disease requiring immediate and correct treatment ‘ typically surgery ‘ is appendicitis.

If a doctor fails to diagnose appendicitis, the delay in treatment can lead to the appendix bursting, which is often fatal.
