Girl was diagnosed with "abnormality of lung" as doctors couldn't find what was wrong with her. Surgery eventually uncovered haemangioma - birthmark growth on lung. Surgery required removal of most of one lung. Two years later, the birthmark had spread to the other lung and she had a serious bleeding episode from which she died. Doctors said she only had 12 months left even if she had recovered from this attack. The parents were unaware of the consequences.
