A woman suffered with headaches, vomiting and seizures for 8 months. She was eventually admitted for an MRI when her face and body became paralysed. The MRI revealed a huge tumor. The woman died not long after surgery. Her first symptoms of the brain tumor included pain and disrupted vision in the right eye. Her husband's complaints led to an inquiry. He claimed that she was initially misdiagnosed with depression. He does not necessarily believe that she would survive but an accurate diagnosis would have meant a better quality of life during her last few months.
