10-Year-Old Dies After Doctors Misdiagnose Cold Sores In Mouth


A 10-year-old girl from Australia died after doctors failed to properly diagnose her. When Briony Klingberg came down with a fever and complained about pain in her throat, her mother Bridget took her to doctors in Adelaide Hills, Australia.

Bridget said she took her daughter to several doctors, but none of them could properly diagnose her. Briony first saw a general practitioner after she started vomiting and experienced trouble swallowing. She was diagnosed with a throat infection and given antibiotics.

Briony’s illness continued to worsen. She was taken to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, where doctors detected ulcers on her throat. She was sent home, only to visit another general practitioner the next day. She was prescribed steroids to help reduce the swelling in her throat.
