Misdiagnosis medical definition: Misdiagnosis is when a medical professional fails to properly identify and/or diagnose a patient’s medical condition. Modern medical technology has made possible the timely and accurate diagnosis of a wide range of diseases. However, when doctors fail to order appropriate tests or follow up on warning signs, diseases can go undiagnosed, leaving patients to suffer needlessly.
