Sometimes neurologists face malpractice suits that occur from cases when a patient's diagnosis is not foreseeable. This requires that neurologists make clear and accurate notes on patient charts to show current reasoning in expectation that eventually, the neurologist may have to defend his or her misdiagnosis in court. Two current trial cases are presented in this article. You decide, which case should be considered malpractice or maloccurrence?
