Hereditary neurological diseases often misdiagnosed

Hereditary disorders with neurological effects can be medically devastating, but many times people with these disorders need to wait long periods before receiving an effective diagnosis. Two such illnesses include Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, or CMT, and familial amyloid polyneuropathy, or FAP. Both disorders often have an onset around the age of 20, and they can sometimes be confused for one another. A proper diagnosis is critical in order to provide the correct treatment that can significantly improve patients' quality of life.

A technological snafu can lead to medical malpractice

In many cases, medical malpractice involves a mistake made by a medical doctor, called an error of commission, or an error of omission, which is something a doctor failed to do. While such errors continue to occur in Texas health care centers, malpractice claims linked to technological errors are becoming increasingly common.
