A 42-year-old woman underwent a sinus biopsy which pointed to a rare form of nasal cancer. The report was placed in the client’s chart, but went unseen by the doctor.  It was only after returning to doctor with nasal bleeding, that the doctor discovered the report in her medical chart. After further imaging studies, it was found that the cancer eroded her orbit and she had to undergo surgery to remove portions of the orbit and her eye followed by chemotherapy and radiation.  The plaintiff contended that had doctor followed the proper standards of care, the biopsy would have been reviewed, her eye would have been spared, and her prognosis would not have worsened.
