I would like to know if there was a chance my husband was misdiagnosed with sarcoidosis while serving in the military. He served in the US Army from 1981 to 1996. He went through a lengthy treatment with varying doses of prednisone which supposedly put the disease into remission but a recurrence of the disease came back in 1993. Again he was treated with doses of prednisone and supposedly no diagnosis of the disease since departing the military in 1996.He served in the Gulf War. In 2002 at the age of 39 he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He stays in remission about 1 year at a time before recurrence of the disease. I would like to know how can he know if he was misdiagnosed in the military. Are there any known cases of this happening?
