By Joel Brakken | Nov 12, 2013


A man is suing a few hospitals and doctors, claiming they failed to diagnose his Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Lorenzo Colucci filed a lawsuit Nov. 4 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. John McKeown, Cancer Care Specialists Ltd., Dr. James Habib, Office of Dr. James S. Habib, Advocate Health Care, Advocate South Suburban Hospital, Franciscan St. James Health and Ingalls Memorial Hospital, citing medical malpractice.

According to the complaint, Colucci was diagnosed Nov. 4, 2011 with advanced Classical Nodular Sclerosis Hodgkin's Lymphoma, with spleen and liver involvement.

Colucci asserts in his suit that for the months prior to his diagnosis, he was treated by Dr. McKeown and Dr. Habib who diagnosed his continuing symptoms as mononucleosis. He claims the doctors were negligent by failing to appreciate recurrent signs and symptoms of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, including other claims.

Colucci is seeking damages in excess of the jurisdictional limit. He is represented in the case by attorney David M. Hundley of Hundley Law Group.
