Medical News Summary (summary of medical news story as reported by News.Scotsman.com): An investigation led to health chiefs at a hospital apologizing to a woman after she had an undiagnosed pituitary gland tumour for three years. An initial diagnosis of hypertension and poor administration lead to late diagnosis and she was eventually blinded by her condition. Nevertheless, the ombudsman did note that the woman should have taken some responsibility in looking for answers when her sight started to deteriorate.
