$4.52 Million Verdict - Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer

Upper gastrointestinal histopathological slides for a 38-year-old woman were misinterpreted at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, resulting in the plaintiff’s stomach cancer not being properly diagnosed until 16 months later. The original slides showed Stage I adenocarcinoma (stomach cancer), and when the slides were properly diagnosed, the plaintiff was at stage III. As a result, the plaintiff was at a 56% chance of recurrence, although at trial, the plaintiff still had not had a recurrence.
