Boston Globe Medical Mystery

Today's Boston Globe had a special magazine on medical issues. Lead story,
on P2, is a dramatic story of a young man whose debilitating illness took 8
years to be diagnosed. Clued strongly by the fact that this was an obscure
disease, I guessed it after reading the first paragraph. More importantly,
putting the symptoms from the first paragraph and one from the third into
both DXplain and Isabel gave the diagnosis (#1 on DXplain list, #7 and
red-flagged on Isabel's)
When will such "second opinions" become mandatory?
