Sentence: After years of ignoring his doctor's advice or simply not seeking it, Aaron developed a pronounced limp caused by the curve in his spine and the different lengths of his legs. Undaunted by the evidence at hand, he embarked on a crusade to prove that earth was beginning to tilt off it's axis and therefore contributing to his pain and suffering. A court ordered psychiatrist later told the judge Aaron was afflicted with the rare condition deniagnosis.

Etymology: to DENY a DIAGNOSIS, can lead to a case of deniagnosis.
