The Different Types of Misdiagnosis

There are numerous forms of misdiagnosis, all of which have the ability to harm a patient’s wellbeing. The different forms of misdiagnosis are categorized as follows:

  1. Equivocal Diagnosis:

With this type of misdiagnosis, a person is never informed of a definite diagnosis. These are extremely ill patients that might need treatments as soon as possible, but are denied access to those treatments due to a lack of diagnoses. This can result in worsening conditions.

  1. False Negative Misdiagnosis:

With this type of misdiagnosis, a person is told a disease is not present while it actually does exist. These types of misdiagnoses leave patients at extreme risks because they may not be receiving the type of treatment that is absolutely necessary to their health.

  1. False Positive Misdiagnosis:

With this type of misdiagnosis, a person is notified that a disease exists in the body when it does not. These types of misdiagnoses are dangerous because they allow patients to be treated for diseases they do not have, which can be dangerous to their health.
