Failure to Timely Diagnose and Treat a Child’s Brain Tumor. This tragic matter involved the alleged failure to order an MRI of the brain made worse by miscommunication between a pediatrician and pediatric neurologist resulting in an eight-month delay in diagnosing a 5-year-old’s brain tumor.  Unfortunately, after two surgeries to remove the tumor, it reoccurred and eventually took the life 5 years later of this brave and beautiful child.  We never gave up, persisting even after defense cancer experts and the child’s brain surgeon informed that even with a prompt diagnosis the tumor was a rare one and may have reoccurred whether or not there was a timely diagnosis.
