Lovesickness Is An ICD-10 Diagnosis

This is an incredible story out of the United Kingdom. A family is claiming malpractice over a little girl’s death from tuberculous. The most sensational stuff is some of the etiologies some of the physicians tried to ascribe to the girl’s symptoms.

An inquest heard that her GP, Dr Sharad Shripadrao Pandit, accused her parents of “mollycoddling” her.

Shockingly, he even claimed her symptoms were brought on because she was ‘lovesick’.

Inappropriate to judge stories of malpractice out of a newspaper. But if even a modicum of truth is in the transcripts out of the Coroner’s Court are true then this is a horror. My thoughts are with her family.
