This case takes place in California and involves a delayed diagnosis of blood clots causing complications. The patient presented to the ER with symptoms of pain, nausea, and difficulty walking. The patient was initially treated with pain medication and intravenous fluids. The patient was seen by the defending doctor, who made notes indicating the patient was not in pain and appeared to have full mobility, although she remained in pain and was not ambulatory. The doctor discharged the patient from the ER with a diagnosis of dehydration. Several days later, the patient’s pain and immobility continued, and she went to get a second opinion. The physician saw her and at once suspected acute compartment syndrome. The physician made a call to another physician regarding her condition and she agreed that the patient was suffering from acute compartment syndrome and required immediate surgery. The patient was sent back to the emergency room for a CAT scan, which revealed that the patient had blood clots in her legs, believed to be caused by an autoimmune onset of Antiphospholipid Syndrome.
