Findings from the inquest into the death of 13-year-old Luca Raso, whose appendicitis was twice misdiagnosed in the days before he died, will be handed down by State Coroner Teresa O'Sullivan in Newcastle today.
Ms O'Sullivan oversaw an inquest in October that investigated the teenager's death in February, 2017.
The inquest heard that Luca died in an ambulance after a week of illness that included vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite and an instance of vomiting brown liquid, which his mother described as looking like "Coca Cola syrup".
An autopsy found the San Clemente High School student died of peritonitis secondary to a ruptured gangrenous appendicitis.
The Newcastle Herald reported previously that Luca's family twice took him to see Dr Paul Bilokopytov at a Bay Medical Group surgery in the week before his death.
On both occasions the doctor said the teenager had viral gastroenteritis.
Luca's mother, Michelle Degenhardt, also called the surgery on two occasions out of concern for her son.
Ms Degenhardt, Dr Bilokopytov and a range of medical experts were among the witnesses who gave evidence at the inquest.
Ms O'Sullivan will hand down her findings at Newcastle courthouse at 10am.
