    Default diagonised with & diagonised of ?

    1. She was diagonised with cancer.

    2. She was diagonised of cancer.

    What are the differences between.diagonised with & diagonised of ?

    I thought # 2 was correct, but I found # 1was used in a book.

    The correct preposition is with. Note the correct spelling of diagnosed.

    I expect the errant 'of' comes from the expression '[given a/confirmed the/... etc etc] diagnosis of cancer.'
