Last Friday, a Massachusetts couple was awarded $7 million because their baby girl was born "with a rare genetic disorder known as cri-du-chat syndrome." Had they been given proper prenatal genetic counseling, they may have been made aware of their child's chromosomal abnormality in order to then be able to decide whether to proceed with the pregnancy.
This case blamed two doctors for the fumbled diagnosis. Indeed, the diagnosis is the point of greatest contention in malpractice suits, according to the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS).
