A 45-year-old woman was referred by her primary care physician to a neurologist because she was noted to be dragging her leg while walking.  MRI of the head, neck and thoracic spine was read by both a neuroradiologist and neurologist as normal. Both failed to appreciate a herniated thoracic disc. The neurologist diagnosed her with MS. By the time it was realized that the MS diagnosis was wrong, the patient had suffered permanent neurological damage. Daniel M. Hodes of Hodes Milman, LLP represented the plaintiff. The case resolved in mediation for $1.3 million.
