FAISALABAD: A one-year-old child is fighting battle with life after a medical report from a private hospital misdiagnosed his illness.
An MRI scan for the child Qasim from a private hospital in Gulistan colony identified a brain tumour, after which his father Muhammad Imran began his treatment.
However, Qasimâ€™s health deteriorated. He was admitted to the Shaukat Khannum Hospital where medical reports suggested that the previous diagnosis was misleading, as a result hindering his brain growth.

â€œI spent several thousand rupees on his treatment. I want action against the doctors who committed this negligence,â€ Imran, the father said.
He adds that his child has become mentally handicapped for life.
