- A New York case involving the sudden death of a 49-year-old wife and mother after doctors failed to diagnose endocarditis, an infection of the heart, which can and did occur after dental work.
- A New Jersey case involving a 47-year-old businessman and family man who sought medical treatment for right eye discomfort. His treating physician misdiagnosed an infection as a corneal abrasion and prescribed a steroid, which further exacerbated the infection and resulted in blindness in the eye.
- A New York case involving an 18-year-old Fashion Institute of Technology student who presented to the school health center with symptoms consistent with meningococcemia, a type of meningitis. The health center’s failure to promptly diagnose and treat the illness resulted in amputation of one leg and two fingers and disfigurement of the other leg.
