Can a prior condition cause a failure to diagnose a new one?

Many Illinois residents suffer from more than one ailment throughout their digestive system. For instance, having an ulcer is separate from suffering from Crohn's Disease (an inflammatory bowel disease that can strike any portion of the digestive system, including the stomach). This distinction became the center of a medical malpractice suit in another state, filed due to a failure to diagnose an ulcer in a patient suffering from Crohn's. 

Oxygen deprivation often leads to an irreversible brain injury

You or your loved ones will look at the case and think "that is clearly medical malpractice, how could anyone think otherwise?"
