Why did the doctors take four months to figure that out? Any Grey's Anatomy fan would have figured that out in seconds.

On a serious note, it just goes to show how even seemingly benign symptoms shoudln't be taken lightly. Good for her that it was diagnosed before anything serious happened.

Because in the absense of facial trauma this falls into the rare & unexpected category. Even experienced clinicians look at the most likely causes first, and in real life there are few Dr. House MD's. They should, however, have sent a sample of that fluid to the lab where its origin should have been revealed.

No,
Actually it's because doctors are nothing more than high paid trial and error practitioners!! Haven't you ever noticed they NEVER get a diagnosis right on the first try? Or second, or third? It's called creating their own job security!!
