Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury are often undiagnosed and untreated.

Leishmaniasis, often undiagnosed, is a dangerous blood borne parasite that can live in stored blood for up to 30 days and is transmitted sexually, congenitally, and by blood transfusion.

Hospital acquired infections were proliferated in the overburdened military evacuation system and some strains have grown to be completely resistant to every antimicrobial available.
