A CT scan revealed a potential lesion on the brain and raised the suspicion of a brain tumor. Patient had a brain biopsy and was diagnosed with cancer of the brain and received radiation therapy. Later, she was diagnosed with radiation necrosis and informed that she never had cancer at all—rather, she had multiple sclerosis. Her condition continued to deteriorate until she eventually died. The case settled for policy limits of $2 million.
