A 15 year old girl presented to the hospital with knee pains. The girl and her mother claim that the misfiling of the x-ray reports by the radiologist ultimately led to a misdiagnosis. The treating doctor gave her Ibuprofen for growing pains. The pain worsened and after seeking a second opinion the mislaid x-rays were discovered and the cancerous growth was found. After chemo and radiation, cancer cells were found on her lungs and spine. The girl and her mother are suing for more than $5 m.
