Parents lose custody of children after baby was misdiagnosed by doctors


Lorina and Jason Troy from Elgin, Texas, have come forward to share how they lost custody of their two children after several doctors continually misdiagnosed their sick child. They hope that their battle with social services will enact changes in the medical system.

In 2015, Lorina had just given birth to their second child. But when the child's head kept growing, they made appointments with medical specialists to work out what was going on. 

While little Jason Troy would ultimately be diagnosed with Benign External Hydracephalus of Infancy, doctors first accused the couple of child abuse, saying repeated shaking was the cause of the swelling.
