Misdiagnosis of Appendicitis
Medical technology has made the timely and accurate diagnosis of appendicitis possible in the overwhelming majority of cases. However, it only takes one mistake in the diagnosis of appendicitis to shatter or end a life.
Appendicitis is often misdiagnosed for less serious conditions like indigestion and flu. A delay in diagnosis can lead to severe medical complications requiring extensive medical treatment, or even wrongful death.
Pain often subsides after an appendix bursts, which creates a dangerous situation for the patient. The burst appendix can cause body systems to be exposed to dangerous infected materials. Failure to properly treat a patient at this point can lead to peritonitis, sepsis and death.
