Michael Laposata, a clinical pathologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center who volunteered his time on behalf of the defense, said that A.R. had a blood clotting disorder that was responsible for the symptoms. Two doctors from Stanford University Medical Center agreed that A.R. had died from illness, not trauma. A.R. has recovered and is living in foster care. (?)
"other ailments, including viral and bacterial infections, blood-clotting disorders and liver disease" is there any evidence of illness in the child who partially recovered? What are the specifics of the illnesses causing the symptoms and should caregivers be more aware of testing for these as a preventative measure?
