Neurologist in Largest Medical Criminal Case Ever

Prosecution in the town of Almelo has called the case against Dutch Neurologist Ernst Jansen Steur the biggest medical criminal case ever in Dutch history. The prosecution suspects the specialist of 21 criminal acts. One woman committed suicide after she had been misinformed by him that she had Alzheimer’s disease. Another 8 people were informed by Jansen Steur that they either had Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or Multiple Sclerosis. He is further suspected of a variety of other misdeeds including stealing 88,000 Euros from a foundation he was chairman of. Jansen Steur left the hospital Medisch Spectrum Twente in 2003, but continued to work in two German hospitals.
