When doctors get it wrong (Part 2): Flesh-eating bacteria

It sounds like a nightmare: After vacationing in Florida, a 50-year-old Indiana woman develops a small pimple-like bump. It continues to grow and becomes more and more painful.

When doctors get it wrong (Part 1): Brain-fluid leak misdiagnosed as allergies

In a story that made national headlines, a healthy 52-year-old Nebraska woman had suffered from a runny nose for years. Her symptoms began after a car accident slammed her face into the dashboard. Doctors initially diagnosed her with allergies, but typical anti-allergy treatments never seemed to help. She finally saw a specialist who tested the fluid and took X-rays. The result? The patient was leaking cerebrospinal fluid from her brain – about a half-liter per day – through a tiny hole in her skull.
