Amplification of the six major human herpesviruses from cerebrospinal fluid by a single PCR. (1/2608)

We used a novel type of primer system, a system that uses stair primers, in which the primer sequences are based on consensus sequences in the DNA polymerase gene of herpesvirus to detect herpesviruses by PCR. A single PCR in a single tube detected the six major herpesviruses that infect the central nervous system: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), and type 2 (HSV-2), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), and human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6). We used the technique to analyze 142 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples that had been stored at -80 degrees C and compared the results with those obtained previously for the same samples by standard, targeted PCR. Four hundred one targeted PCR tests had been run with the 142 samples to detect HSV-1, HSV-2, CMV, and VZV; screening for EBV and HHV-6 was not prescribed when the samples were initially taken. Eighteen CSF samples tested positive by classic targeted PCR. The herpesvirus consensus PCR detected herpesviruses in 37 samples, including 3 samples with coinfections and 17 viral isolates which were not targeted. Two samples identified as infected by the targeted PCR tested negative by the consensus PCR, and eight samples that tested positive by the consensus PCR were negative by the targeted PCR. One hundred three samples scored negative by both the targeted and the consensus PCRs. This preliminary study demonstrates the value of testing for six different herpesviruses simultaneously by a sensitive and straightforward technique rather than screening only for those viruses that are causing infections as suggested by clinical signs.  (+info)

Non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD): a comprehensive review. (2/2608)

Non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD) represents a well-recognized clinical problem with a reported incidence among individuals with a diagnosis of intractable epilepsy as high as 36%. A failure to identify this disorder may lead to certain risks for the patient including polypharmacy, anticonvulsant toxicity, hazardous intervention, social and economic demands and a lack of recognition or neglect of any underlying psychological distress. This review provides a description of NEAD in an historic and societal context and discusses the variety of terminology which has been applied to this psychophysiological phenomenon. Epidemiology and associated methodological limitations; and diagnostic and classification issues related to NEAD in comparison to epilepsy are considered. The problems of failure to recognize NEAD in comparison to epilepsy are considered. The problems of failure to recognize NEAD are outlined, and theoretical and empirical aetiological issues are discussed.  (+info)

Transrectal ultrasonography in the assessment of congenital vaginal canalization defects. (3/2608)

Our aim was to evaluate the reliability of transrectal ultrasonography in the preoperative assessment of congenital vaginal canalization defects. We studied nine patients, six with suspected Rokitansky syndrome and three with suspected complete transverse septum. Before corrective surgery all the patients underwent pelvic examination, transabdominal and transrectal ultrasonography. The ultrasonographic findings were compared with the surgical ones. Transrectal ultrasonography provided an accurate map of the pelvic organs showing the precise distances between the urethra and bladder anteriorly, rectum posteriorly, retrohymenal fovea caudally, and pelvic peritoneum cranially. Transrectal ultrasonography produced a picture that corresponded perfectly with the real anatomical situation. Conversely, abdominal ultrasonography provided inadequate images in six of our nine patients, and magnetic resonance imaging was responsible for a mistaken diagnosis in one patient with suspected transverse vaginal septum. In conclusion, if our results are confirmed in larger series, transrectal ultrasonography could be considered as a diagnostic procedure of choice in the assessment of vaginal canalization defects.  (+info)

Geometric features of coronary artery lesions favoring acute occlusion and myocardial infarction: a quantitative angiographic study. (4/2608)

OBJECTIVES: We sought to identify the angiographic predictors of a future infarction, to study their interaction with time to infarction, patient risk factors and medications, and to evaluate their clinical utility for risk stratification. BACKGROUND: Identification of coronary lesions at risk of acute occlusion remains challenging. Stenosis severity is poorly predictive but other stenosis descriptors might be better predictors. METHODS: Eighty-four patients with an acute myocardial infarction and a coronary angiogram performed within the preceding 36 months (baseline angiogram), and after infarction were selected. All coronary stenoses (from 10% to 95% lumen diameter reduction) at baseline angiogram were analyzed by computer-assisted quantification. Each of the 84 lesions responsible for the infarction (culprit) was compared with the nonculprit stenoses (controls) in the same patient. RESULTS: Culprit lesions were more symmetrical (symmetry index +15%; p < 0.001), had steeper outflow angles (maximal angle +4 degrees; p < 0.001), were more severe (percent stenosis +5%; p = 0.001) and longer (+ 1.5 mm, p = 0.01) than controls. The symmetry index and the outflow angles were the two independent predictors of infarction at three-year follow-up. Stenosis severity predicted only infarctions occurring within 1 year after angiography. In moderately severe stenoses (40% to 70% stenosis), stratification using the symmetry index and outflow angles accurately predicted lesions remaining free of occlusion and infarction at three-year follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Better characterization of stenosis geometry might help to understand the pathophysiologic mechanisms triggering coronary occlusion and to stratify patients for improved care.  (+info)

Clinical evaluation of the enhanced Gen-Probe Amplified Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Direct Test for rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis in prison inmates. (5/2608)

The reliability of the enhanced Amplified Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Direct Test (E-MTD; Gen-Probe, Inc., San Diego, Calif.) for rapid diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) was evaluated by testing 1, 004 respiratory specimens from 489 Texas prison inmates. Results were compared to those of mycobacterial culture (BACTEC TB 460 and Middlebrook 7H11 biplates), smear for acid-fast bacilli (AFB; auramine O), and clinical course. After chart review, three patients (nine specimens) who were on antituberculosis therapy before the study began were excluded from final analysis. Of the remaining 995 specimens, 21 were AFB smear positive: 13 grew Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), 6 grew nontuberculous mycobacteria, and 2 (from two patients diagnosed with TB and started on therapy after the study began) were culture negative. Twenty-eight specimens (20 patients) were positive for MTBC by culture and E-MTD. Seven specimens (seven patients) were positive by culture alone; three were from patients who had other E-MTD-positive specimens, two were false-positive cultures, and two were false-negative E-MTD results. Eight specimens were positive by E-MTD only; four specimens (four patients) were false-positive E-MTD results, and four specimens were from two patients with earlier E-MTD-positive specimens that grew MTBC. Thus, there were 22 patients with TB (10 smear positive and 12 smear negative). The sensitivity and specificity of the AFB smear for diagnosis of TB, by patient, were 45.5 and 98.9%, respectively. After resolving discrepancies, these same values for E-MTD were 90.9 and 99.1% overall, 100 and 100% for the smear-positive patients, and 83.3 and 99.1% for the smear-negative patients. Excluding the one smear-negative patient whose E-MTD-negative, MTBC culture-positive specimen contained inhibitory substances, the sensitivity of E-MTD was 95.2% overall and 90.9% in smear-negative patients. The specificity and positive predictive value of E-MTD can be improved, without altering other performance characteristics, by modifying the equivocal zone recommended by the manufacturer. These data suggest that E-MTD is a reliable method for rapid diagnosis of pulmonary TB, irrespective of the AFB smear result. Guidelines for the most appropriate use of E-MTD with smear-negative patients are needed.  (+info)

The misdiagnosis of epilepsy and the management of refractory epilepsy in a specialist clinic. (6/2608)

We assessed the frequency, causes and consequences of erroneous diagnosis of epilepsy, and the outcome of patients referred with 'refractory epilepsy', by retrospective analysis of the case records of 324 patients. The sample was divided into those exposed to anti-epileptic drugs (n = 184), of whom 92 were said to have refractory seizures, and those who had not received treatment (n = 140). The latter group is reported elsewhere. The overall misdiagnosis rate was 26.1% (46/184), with incomplete history-taking and misinterpretation of the EEG equally responsible. Side-effects were reported by 19/40, while unnecessary driving restrictions and employment difficulties were encountered by 12/33 and 5/33, respectively. Of those labelled 'refractory epilepsy', 12 did not have epilepsy. Sixteen were rendered seizure-free and 25 significantly improved by the optimal use of anti-epileptic drugs or surgery. Diagnostic and management services for patients with suspected and established epilepsy are suboptimal, with psychological and socio-economic consequences for individual patients. The resulting economic burden on the health and welfare services is probably substantial.  (+info)

Current trends in trachoma in a previously hyperendemic area. The Trachoma Study Group. (7/2608)

In response to reports of an excessive number of cases of trachoma at the end of 1995 from the western parts of the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, 837 children in the age-group 1-10 years were examined in three villages from where the maximum number of cases hailed. Clinically, the prevalence of trachoma was found to be 8.5% (71). The prevalence was significantly higher in males as compared to females (p < 0.05); and was observed to increase with age. 85.9% (61) of the clinically diagnosed children were active infective cases. 54.9% (39) of the clinically diagnosed cases showed the presence of antigen in the upper tarsal conjunctival scraping from the affected eye, using the Chlamydia trachomatis direct specimen kit (Syva MicroTrak, UK). It was concluded that ophthalmologists must be reoriented to the clinical diagnosis of trachoma to prevent overdiagnosis.  (+info)

Multiple system atrophy. (8/2608)

Multiple system atrophy is a neurological disorder that has gone unrecognized for too long due to its involvement across multiple regions of the central nervous system. This disorder is finally being unveiled through increased reporting in the scientific literature. Further research will enhance our understanding of this disease and lead to more effective treatment regimens as well as an improved quality of life for patients with MSA.  (+info)

Diagnostic errors remain an underemphasised and understudied area of patient safety research. We briefly summarise the methods that have been used to conduct research on epidemiology, contributing factors and interventions related to diagnostic error and outline directions for future research. Research methods that have studied epidemiology of diagnostic error provide some estimate on diagnostic error rates. However, there appears to be a large variability in the reported rates due to the heterogeneity of definitions and study methods used. Thus, future methods should focus on obtaining more precise estimates in different settings of care. This would lay the foundation for measuring error rates over time to evaluate improvements. Research methods have studied contributing factors for diagnostic error in both naturalistic and experimental settings. Both approaches have revealed important and complementary information. Newer conceptual models from outside healthcare are needed to advance the depth ...
Diagnostic errors are hot these days. this subject is of importance for patient safety and as such attention on this subject has increased. Previously I wrote about a diagnostic error, the availability bias. There are many more possible cognitive diagnostic errors to be made by physicians. Some diagnostic errors are more common in psychiatry.. Fundamental attribution error: the tendency to be judgmental and blame patients for their illnesses (dispositional causes) rather than examine the circumstances (situational factors) that might have been responsible as per the Jason Stone Personal Injury Lawyer firm expert in this cases. In particular, psychiatric patients, minorities, and other marginalized groups tend to suffer from this Cognitive Dispositions to Respond. Cultural differences exist in terms of the respective weights attributed to dispositional and situational causes.. Psych-out error : psychiatric patients appear to be particularly vulnerable to the Cognitive Dispositions to Respond ...
Diagnostic errors by clinicians have been increasingly recognized as a source of patient dissatisfaction and increased healthcare costs. Although research has helped determine the sources of diagnostic error, the role of laboratory services has not received significant attention. In this session, information about the science of diagnostic errors will be presented and opportunities for laboratory professionals to improve patient outcomes through interventions that reduce the risk of diagnostic errors will be described.. ...
In Emergency Medicine Journal, Laura Medford-Davis and colleagues evaluate possible diagnostic errors and associated process breakdowns for patients who presented to the emergency department (ED) with abdominal pain. The authors conducted a retrospective chart review of adult ED patients at an urban academic hospital, using a computerized algorithm to identify high-risk patients. They considered patients to be high-risk if they presented to the ED with abdominal pain and were discharged, but returned to the ED within 10 days and were then hospitalized. Diagnostic errors were defined as missed opportunities to make a correct or timely diagnosis based on the evidence available during the first ED visit, regardless of patient harm, and included errors that involved both ED and non-ED providers. The authors find that diagnostic errors occurred in 35 out of 100 high-risk cases. Over two-thirds had process breakdowns involving the patient-provider encounter (most commonly history-taking or ordering ...
Our search strategy has been previously described.8 Briefly, we sought articles, books and conference presentations relating to the prevention, reduction or mitigation of diagnostic errors in PubMed and several other medical and non-medical databases. We pursued references from these sources and asked authorities in the field of applied cognition and decision-making to recommend additional readings. Articles and books were included in this analysis if they contained results from an intervention trial or suggested an intervention to reduce cognitive-related diagnostic error. Publications that focused on development or refinement of specific diagnostic tests or technologies, or solely on the aetiology or epidemiology of error, or dealt primarily with provider satisfaction or preferences were excluded.. A full-text review using an approach described by Gordon and Findley9 was performed on the 42 empirical studies that tested an intervention. Nineteen quality-based criteria were independently ...

It is thought that about 1 in 10 diagnoses made by doctors is incorrect. Improving diagnosis is a patient safety imperative that requires a team effort. This conference will bring together world leaders in diagnostic error, the safety sciences, health IT, medical indemnity providers and clinicians passionate about making diagnosis more accurate, timely and safe. The patient voice will be a focus of attention. The language of diagnosis will be explored and the contribution that medical culture makes to diagnostic error will be examined.

Wilsons disease, with its varied clinical manifestations, often poses a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.2 Scheinberg et al3 reported that early manifestations of WD are generally hepatic or neurological (40% each) while remainders present with psychiatric, haematological, renal, or osteochondrotic symptoms.. Various studies on diagnostic errors with specific clinical syndromes show that clinical diagnoses are incorrect at variable frequency.4-6 Walshe and Yealland7 analysed initial diagnosis of 136 patients of WD and observed that it fell into four groups-that is, organic disorder other than WD 25.7%, psychiatric illness 23.5%, seizure disorder 19.1%, and WD 31.6%. Incorrect diagnoses were as diverse as flat feet, myxoedema, myasthenia gravis, encephalitis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons disease, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety state, etc. They concluded, no two patients are ever the same, even in a sibship and there is no such thing as typical picture of Wilsons disease.

The second Diagnostic Errors in Medicine Conference, sponsored by the Society for Medical Decision Making, was held in late 2009 in Los Angeles. In this newsletter last year, I discussed the first Diagnostic Errors in Medicine Conference, at which there was an intense focus on the nature and types of diagnostic errors which physicians commit, theories of mind and decision making as well as establishing a research agenda for understanding and changing physicians behavior to reduce their frequency and severity. At this 2nd conference, there was significantly more emphasis on assessing our current understanding of clinical reasoning and where the field stands now after more than 20 years of effort. Furthermore, emergency medicine figured prominently in the discussions of diagnostic errors because the emergency encounter is emblematic of the many features predisposing to diagnostic error, including 1) time constraints on decision-making, 2) resource limitations, 3) background information ...
Misdiagnosis can lead to harm since a failure to properly diagnosis an illness or injury can lead to a delay in needed treatment.. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recently released a publication designed to draw attention to the issue of diagnostic errors within the medical field in the United States. The piece follows previous publications in the Quality Chasm Series, including To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System, which focused on human errors that impact medical care. This series is provided by the IOM in an attempt to improve the quality of health care in the U.S.. The most recent publication, Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, focuses on addressing inaccurate or delayed medical diagnosis.. Findings of the IOM: Everyone will experience a medical misdiagnosis. The IOM Committee on Diagnostic Error in Health Care concludes that most people will experience at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with devastating consequences. The committee also notes that these ...

For the second consecutive year, diagnostic error and managing test results were ranked number 1 among the Top 10 Patient Safety Concerns for 2019 identified by the ECRI Institute.. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country, said Marcus Schabacker, MD, president and CEO, ECRI Institute. This guidance can help healthcare leaders and clinicians save lives.Healthcare providers rely on EHRs to help with clinical decision support and tracking test results. But that technology is just one tool in the diagnostic process, said William Marella, executive director of operations and analytics, at the ECRI Institute PSO.. We have to recognize the limits of current technology and ensure that we have processes in place to close the loop on diagnostic tests, Marella said. This safety issue cuts across acute and ambulatory settings, requiring teamwork across the health system.. ECRI Institutes 2019 list of concerns addresses systemic issues facing health systems, such as ...
Our findings should be interpreted in light of several limitations. The commonly cited lesson to broaden the differential diagnosis could have resulted from our stated preference for diagnoses that did not cross your mind. However, the 20% of physicians who initially had considered the correct diagnosis were just as likely as those who had not to report this lesson. Although failure to consider the correct diagnosis is the most common cause of diagnostic errors, simply broadening the differential diagnosis without critical thought easily could lead to excessive testing.30. The inclusion of the missed Lyme disease case could have influenced respondents answers and their selection of errors, but we judged this risk to be outweighed by the benefits of self-disclosure, which often improves participant disclosure of sensitive information.31,32. The selection of errors may have been influenced by the physicians level of comfort in reporting them, with high rates of forgivable errors, rare ...

In reviewing 25 years of U.S. malpractice claim payouts, Johns Hopkins researchers found that diagnostic errors - not surgical mistakes or medication overdoses - accounted for the largest fraction of claims, the most severe patient harm, and the highest total of penalty payouts. Diagnosis-related payments amounted to $38.8 billion between 1986 and 2010, they found.

Many Americans will be diagnosed incorrectly at least once in their lifetimes. That is the troubling finding made in a newly issued report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The report found that diagnostic errors are by far the most pervasive in medicine, outranking medication mistakes. An estimated 12 million patients are misdiagnosed in the United States each year. A major part of the problem is a lack of communication, according to the report.

The overall response rate was 53% (N = 726). More than one-half (54%) of respondents reported that RESULTS The overall response rate was 53% (N = 726). More than one-half (54%) of respondents reported that they made a diagnostic error at least once or twice per month; this frequency was markedly higher (77%) among trainees. Almost one-half (45%) of respondents reported diagnostic errors that harmed patients at least once or twice per year. Failure to gather information through history, physical examination, or chart review was the most-commonly reported process breakdown, whereas inadequate care coordination and teamwork was the most-commonly reported system factor. Viral illnesses being diagnosed as bacterial illnesses was the most-commonly reported diagnostic error, followed by misdiagnosis of medication side effects, psychiatric disorders, and appendicitis. Physicians ranked access to electronic health records and close follow-up of patients as strategies most likely to be effective in ...
We then present two studies in scarlet, so to speak: investigations of the types of diagnostic errors physicians make. Okafor and colleagues analysed 509 incidents voluntarily reported by physicians and found that 209 were related to diagnostic errors. They classified the errors as cognitive, system related or unremediable; while system factors were found in 34% of cases, cognitive errors were more frequent, occurring in 41% of cases. Medford-Davis and colleagues reviewed the charts of 100 adult ED patients presenting with abdominal pain who were discharged, or who returned within the next 10 days and were hospitalised. 35 of the patients had diagnostic errors, with about ½ of these considered to have the potential for serious harm. Most of the errors could be classified as due to failure to obtain an appropriate history or physical, not ordering appropriate tests, and failure to follow up on the tests.. In a third report by Broder and colleagues, you will undoubtedly identify with the young ...

Posted on March 20, 2015. Shared from a Guest Post on Indiewires Women in Hollywood. By: Elissa Leonard. In 2012, I bought the life-story rights of a nurse who took on the medical establishment when she uncovered an epidemic of misdiagnoses. I had always wanted to produce a feature film, and I finally found a story I wanted to tell: that of Sally Pacholok. Think Erin Brockovich, but in the field of healthcare.. For years, patients had been coming into Sally Pacholoks Michigan hospital with symptoms of and risk factors for vitamin B12 deficiency, but doctors would not test for it. Sally finally got fed up, and in 2005, she wrote her influential book Could It Be B12? An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses. I read Sallys book in 2009 and took a camcorder to interview her, as well as patients and doctors around the country. Having met misdiagnosed patients (and having been one myself), I knew that public awareness could help people and save healthcare dollars. I also knew I had an audience for the film ...
The current standard for biopsy-based diagnoses of rejection of heart transplants is the ISHLT classification from 2004, which represents a widely-used international consensus, based on morphological criteria of the cellular infiltrate within the myocardial specimen system with certainties and some arbitrary and blurred parameters. Recent data-driven approaches using molecular and conventional technologies indicate that this system produces incorrect diagnoses with potential harm to patients due to inappropriate treatment. To address this unmet need and improve diagnostics in the area of organ transplantation, the Alberta Transplant Applied Genomics Centre (ATAGC, University of Alberta) has developed a new diagnostic system - the Molecular Microscope™ Diagnostic System (MMDx) that interprets biopsies in terms of their molecular phenotype, and combines the molecular and histopathological features of transplant biopsies, plus clinical and laboratory parameters, to create the first Integrated ...
Carson Thomas was a 20-year-old infantryman when he went to see United States Army medics to discuss the pain in his groin on February 12, 2012. The senior medic referred him to the Evans Army Community Hospital in Colorado. He was subsequently diagnosed with a hernia. At first, Thomas was placed on light duty to give his body time to heal. But it didnt. The pain continued.. And it wasnt easy to endure, Thomas says: Ive never been stabbed, but if I had to guess, thats what it feels like.. Thomas visited doctors on the base no fewer than eight times from February 2012 and April 2014 to find out why the pain never went away, but doctors never did anything more than prescribe Ibuprofen. He was placed on dead man status, which meant he was basically as useless as a dead man to the army.. That type of care, they just treated me like I was a dude just trying to get on profile, he later said. Thats how I felt the whole entire time. They just treated me like a piece of shit.. The hospitals ...
Pertussis is most severe among unvaccinated infants (< 1 year of age), and still leads to several reported deaths in the Netherlands every year. In order to avoid pertussis-related infant morbidity and mortality, pertussis surveillance data are used to guide pertussis control measures. However, more insight into the accuracy of pertussis surveillance and control, and into the range of healthcare and public health-related factors that impede this are needed. We analysed a unique combination of data sources from one Dutch region of 1.1 million residents, including data from laboratory databases and local public health notifications between 2010 and 2013. This large study (n = 12,090 pertussis tests) reveals possible misdiagnoses, substantial under-notification (18%, 412/2,301 laboratory positive episodes) and a delay between patient symptoms and notification to the local public health services (median 34 days, interquartile range (IQR): 27-54). It is likely that the misdiagnoses, under-notification and

c) In an article published in Adverse Drug Reaction & Toxicology Review, (9) researchers Andrew Wakefield and Scott Montgomery, who have been investigating a possible causal relationship between the MMR vaccine (measles-mumps-rubella) and the autism enterocolitis syndrome, carefully reviewed inadequacies of the early pre-licensing trials of the MMR vaccine with a maximum follow up of 28 days and even shorter periods in some of the studies. They stressed that such short periods of observation following the vaccine were totally inadequate to detect delayed reactions, including pervasive developmental delay (autism), immune deficiencies, and inflammatory bowel disease, which are known from earlier published reports to occur following both the natural measles infection and the measles vaccine.. The most interesting feature of the Wakefield/Montgomery article was that it was reviewed by four leading British authorities, all of whom had previously held positions in the regulation and licensing of ...

Dr. Kirtanes comment highlights the problem of underuse.. I suspect he sees many suitable patients who have not been offered cutting-edge therapy.. Of course, inequity is a fundamental flaw in US healthcare. Its an ugly blemish for our nation.. Once a month, on Saturdays, I see underserved and low-income patients in the Have-A-Heart clinic. The difference between this clinic and my regular job is stark.. In my regular job, in a well-endowed private hospital in a rich suburb, the challenge is improving decision quality and reducing harm from over-diagnosis and over-treatment. In the Have-A-Heart clinic, the challenge is simply to deliver basic medical care.. I am not a policy expert, but I think our enormous waste of medical resources-created mostly by fear-mongering, disease creation, over-diagnosis and over-treatment-causes, or at least exacerbates, underuse.. So to my colleague, Dr. Kirtane, I respectfully propose that over-diagnosis and over-treatment is the disease and underuse is a ...

The author writes: Sometimes doctors gather all the clues correctly, think all the right things based on those clues, and still get it wrong. But in this case, another significant thought error contributed to the misdiagnosis: my tendency to come to early closure. Early closure, it turns out, is a danger that lies in wait mostly for seasoned clinicians (far more commonly, at least, than for medical students and residents). Because seasoned clinicians rely more on pattern recognition to make diagnoses and often come to their conclusions rapidly, theyre at far greater risk for leaping toward those conclusions without examining all other should present (luckily for us all, this is the exception and not the rule). At other times, however, these mistakes are made because the physician was simply in a hurry, or tired, or didnt care enough to think through the evidence in ways he should have, saw a pattern he thought he recognized, and stopped asking the most important question a physician can ever ...

Despite the pervasiveness of diagnostic errors and the risk for serious patient harm, diagnostic errors have been largely unappreciated within the quality and patient safety movements in health care. Without a dedicated focus on improving diagnosis, these errors will likely worsen as the delivery of health care and the diagnostic process continue to increase in complexity. More information ...
According to the 2015 report from the Institute of Medicine Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, every person with access to healthcare will experience at least one diagnostic error in her lifetime. The diagnostic process for clinicians can be complex and requires collaboration between patients, clinicians and healthcare providers to provide the best treatment plan. There remains room for improvement in reducing diagnostic error, as discussed during a Nov. 28 session at RSNA 2017 in Chicago.. ...

Although healthcare quality and patient safety have longstanding international attention, the target of reducing diagnostic errors has only recently gained prominence, even though numerous patients, families and professional caregivers have suffered from diagnostic mishaps for a long time. Similarly, patients have always been involved in their own care to some extent, but only recently have patients sought more opportunities for engagement and participation in healthcare improvements. This paper brings these two promising trends together, analyzing strategies for patient involvement in reducing diagnostic errors in an individuals own care, in improving the healthcare delivery systems diagnostic safety, and in contributing to research and policy development on diagnosis-related issues. ...
April Liwinags mother suffered a missed diagnosis of breast cancer. Now April looks at the role of the justice system in making doctors more accountable, and less apt to make diagnostic mistakes.. ………………………………………………………….. From April:. In my essay entitled, Diagnostic Error and the Justice System: How Can We Hope for a Cure if Physicians Fail to Diagnose Breast Cancer in Patients?, I discuss my mothers delayed breast cancer diagnosis and how the justice system can play a role by encouraging the healthcare system to improve their practices to eliminate misdiagnosis.. Although the justice system is inherently reactive and money is never enough to make the plaintiff whole, holding physicians accountable for their negligence may deter them from deviating from the standard of care, such as failing to perform a mammogram or biopsy. There are obvious limitations to turning to the legal system as a solution for eliminating misdiagnosis, namely, the damage ...
Scabies is often misdiagnosed because the early symptoms resemble a host of other skin diseases. But getting the symptoms examined by an experienced doctor will help in timely diagnosis and treatment of scabies. The first symptoms of Scabies only appear after 4 to 6 weeks. The first signs can easily be mistaken for an insect bite or pimple. But over a few weeks, the rash becomes more prominent and the itching goes from bad to worse. A doctor who saw the patient in the early stages might diagnose him for a totally different infection.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Reducing diagnostic errors worldwide through diagnostic management teams. AU - Verna, Roberto. AU - Velazquez, Adriana Berumen. AU - Laposata, Michael. N1 - Publisher Copyright: © Korean Society for Laboratory Medicine.. PY - 2019. Y1 - 2019. N2 - A major challenge facing most countries is the growing cost of healthcare. Laboratory testing costs constitute approximately 3% of all clinical costs, while waste of funds due to inappropriate admissions to clinical departments is reported to be as high as 15%. A frequently used approach to save money in healthcare is random reduction of laboratory budgets, focusing on decreasing the number of unnecessary laboratory tests. The World Health Assembly has approached this problem by publishing a list of essential in vitro diagnostic tests, to achieve a global rationalization of the problem. A much more thoughtful strategy to reducing healthcare expenditure is to improve the efficiency of the diagnostic process. Decreasing the time to a ...

When I heard about this report, I was concerned that parents like yourself will get confused. Asthma is one of the most common medical conditions in children and adults. It is still often under-recognized, under-diagnosed and under-treated. That is why I am worried about claims of over-diagnosis and over-treatment.. Most often, people relate tightness of the chest and wheezy noise as symptoms of asthma. However, many children only have cough and chest congestion. Wheezing may not happen at all, or only when the child is sick with a cold. Many children have cough when they run. The cough may not be too severe unless the child is sick with a cold.. Children with asthma have inflammation of the bronchial tubes; these tubes react to things that they are allergic to: dust mites, mould, or pet dander. Their symptoms can be seasonal or everyday. Their cough and chest congestion are worse when they contract viral infections.. Cold symptoms usually last a few days in normal healthy children. However, if ...
Millions and millions of dollars are collected each year for charities involving all these so called separate diseases. Supposedly research is looking for causes and cures for all these unrelated diseases. Where are all these causes and cures? Where are any of them? All I am noticing are more and more emerging conditions with new labels and only symptomatic treatments. I personally know several people who were misdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. A good friend and now a member of our lyme disease support group, was misdiagnosed with M.S. for 10 years. During these 10 years she lost a very young child to what she now believes was congenital lyme disease. She was treated with chemotherapy drugs and other M.S drugs, but only continued to decline. She was finally treated for lyme with long term antibiotics and has regained many of her functions. She recently acquired her old hospital records which stated that 10 years ago her spinal fluid and blood had tested positive for lyme. The records state ...
Lymphomas are neoplasms of lymphocytes and their precursor cells. This disease develops from lymph nodes or extranodal lymphoid tissue. A common site for such a tumour is the chest. The authors describe the case of a young man, who was admitted do the thoracic surgery department with a mediastinal tumour and an induration of the base of the neck. Initial diagnostic tests gave the wrong diagnosis of actinomycosis. A lack of progress in the therapy and the occurrence of a life-threatening condition led to the implementation of more aggressive diagnostic methods. In biopsies taken during thoracotomy, the patient was finally diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma of nodular sclerosis type. Conclusions: Mediastinal tumours may cause diagnostic difficulties and, to avoid mistakes, typical histological studies should be complemented by targeted immunohistochemical tests. ...
With so much at stake with regards to your overall health, maintaining balanced thyroid hormone levels is important. One in eight women produce either too much or not enough thyroid hormone. Females are at higher risk for thyroid issues than men, and the risk for both genders increases with age. In fact the stats for those with undiagnosed thyroid disease are shocking. Hormonal changes like pregnancy or menopause can also make women more vulnerable to thyroid problems. Of course, its also easy to attribute thyroid symptoms to age or menopause instead of getting to the root of the issue.. ...

Malaria is a serious infectious disease. According to the World Health Organization, it is responsible for nearly one million deaths each year. There are various techniques to diagnose malaria of which manual microscopy is considered to be the gold standard. However due to the number of steps required in manual assessment, this diagnostic method is time consuming (leading to late diagnosis) and prone to human error (leading to erroneous diagnosis), even in experienced hands. The focus of this study is to develop a robust, unsupervised and sensitive malaria screening technique with low material cost and one that has an advantage over other techniques in that it minimizes human reliance and is, therefore, more consistent in applying diagnostic criteria. A method based on digital image processing of Giemsa-stained thin smear image is developed to facilitate the diagnostic process. The diagnosis procedure is divided into two parts; enumeration and identification. The image-based method presented here is

Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is a widely used tool in emergency and critical care settings, useful in the decision-making process as well as in interventional guidance. While having an impressive diagnostic accuracy in the hands of highly skilled operators, inexperienced practitioners must be aware of some common misinterpretations that may lead to wrong decisions at the bedside. This article provides a revision list of common POCUS misdiagnoses usually found in practice and offers useful tips to recognize and avoid them. The following aspects were selected and reviewed: pericardial effusion vs. pleural vs. ascites vs. epicardial fat; right ventricle dilation in acute pulmonary embolism and inferior vena cava for volume status assessment in cardiac ultrasound; lung point and lung pulse misinterpretations and mirror artifacts vs. lung consolidations in lung ultrasound; peritoneal fluid vs. the stomach and a critical appraisal of gallbladder signs of acute cholecystitis in abdominal ultrasound;

The detection of anti-dsDNA antibodies is a crucial issue in the diagnosis of SLE, especially in the early stages of the disease when the clinical manifestations and laboratory tests may not allow us to correctly classify the patient. At such a stage, overdiagnosis may lead to inappropriate treatment, while underdiagnosis may delay the use of drugs able to control the disease.. Despite the great relevance of anti-dsDNA antibodies and the technical progresses of the past years, the measurement of these antibodies in clinical practice still represents a challenge. The Farr assay is considered the gold standard in anti-dsDNA detection because of its high specificity and sensitivity and, mainly, for its high correlation with disease activity. However, the use of radioactive material and the short shelf life of radiolabeled DNA limits its use. CLIFT is a very specific assay with a high predictive value for the diagnosis of SLE, but is characterized by a low sensitivity and is not very suitable for ...

I would like to share my medical story that started with a wrong diagnosis that led to the truth! So I was in fact very blessed by my wrong diagnosis.Several months ago I went to visit a gastroenterologist specialist as I had been suffering from intermittent constipation which was chronic when I had it, and happening with much more regularity. I could never understand the reason why as I ate a healthy diet with lots of fruits, veggies and fibre that would send normal constitutions to the bathroom several times a day. All I knew was that the food I was eating was not leaving my body and I was always uncomfortable with severe bloating. I had tried to loose some excess weight for years and never succeeded - I am about 10 lbs overweight.The specialist offered to do a colonoscopy (the very thing I had dreaded for years and had put off looking into my problem as a result of) I had accompanied my mum for a colonoscopy several years ago when I lived in the UK and they had to stop it as she was screaming ...

The objective of our study was to evaluate the accuracy of frozen section (FS) in borderline ovarian tumours (BOT) and to define the factors associated with misdiagnosis during FS evaluation. We performed a retrospective review of patients who underwent exploratory laparotomy for an adnexal mass, from January 2007 to July 2012, at a tertiary oncology centre in Turkey. Patients with a diagnosis of BOT either in FS or in permanent pathology were identified. Agreement between FS diagnosis and permanent histology was observed in 37/59 patients (62.7%), which gave a sensitivity and a positive predictive value of 71.2% and 84.1%, respectively. In patients with a diagnosis of BOT by frozen section only (n = 44), the diagnosis was consistent with permanent histopathology in 37/44 patients (84.1%). Frozen section interpreted a malignant tumour as BOT (under-diagnosis) in 6/44 (13.6%) of cases and interpreted a benign lesion as BOT (over-diagnosis) in 1/44 (2.3%) of cases. Slide review of discrepant cases ...
A reliable history is always the best source of clinical information but is also the area most vulnerable to corruption or misinterpretation. Skilful history taking is cheaper and more effective than a battery of tests.. A badly taken history may lead to unnecessary investigation, inappropriate treatment, wasteful consumption of resources - at worst, harm to the patient. Although there are defined components in the history taking, the clinical interview is far from routine or mechanical. It should be taken intelligently and thoughtfully.. From the moment the patient utters the first sentence, a series of mental processes should immediately begin to interpret and synthesise the information provided.. There are real questions behind the questions that you ask:. ...
Current methods of grading gliomas have inherent limitations. The current reference standard of histopathologic grading can be inaccurate when biopsy samples are not taken from the most malignant tumor region or when the tumor is not completely resected. This is a particular problem with glioma because of the infiltrative proliferation of the tumor. Although histopathologic grading is often performed on the enhancing portion of the tumor, vascular networks in the peritumoral region serve as a path for tumoral infiltration along perivascular spaces. The region of highest vascularity and malignancy may then be within the so-called peritumoral or perienhancing region (22).. Radiologic grading of tumors with conventional MR imaging is not always accurate, with sensitivity in identifying high-grade gliomas ranging from 55.1% to 83.3% in other studies (7, 8, 11) and 72.5% in this study. Yet, accurate tumor grading has important implications for treatment planning: Patients with an erroneous diagnosis ...

For the diagnosis of vaginal calculi, ultrasound is considered more accurate than plain radiography, although there are limitations [5]. In cases of partially filled bladder they still can project within it and lead to erroneous diagnosis of bladder calculi, the same is true for dumbbell calculi with vesical component. Dense posterior shadowing of the calculus can make it difficult to evaluate the vaginal component like in the case presented here. CT scan represents the examination of choice helping to depict not only the exact location and extent of the stone, but also to detect the foreign body nidus and other complications like infection [6]. In our case urethral calculi were only seen on CT scan. Moreover it can provide a correct roadmap for surgical planning ...

Introduction. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer in the white population. Patients are increasingly young, and the rise in incidence, together with the enormous associated health care costs,1 calls for new diagnostic techniques that are fast, reliable, and affordable.. Incisional biopsy (generally punch biopsy) is used to confirm a diagnosis of BCC. However, this technique only targets a limited fragment of the tumor and it may fail to correctly classify histologic subtypes. There have been reports of aggressive subtypes being classified as nonaggressive following incisional biopsy. This is more frequent in mixed or large BCCs, where there is a greater chance of missing the most aggressive part of the tumor.2-6 Incorrect classification of histologic subtype can result in inappropriate treatment, increased recurrence rates, and higher costs.2-6. High-frequency ultrasound (HFUS) imaging of the skin is gaining increasing recognition as a first-line diagnostic tool for the ...
