was not familiar


Explanation:
"documentado" in this context refers to not being aware of/familiar with the disease. Later on it is explained that it was the first time the doctor had come accross it.
I believe "informed" can be ambiguous as it may lead to the conclusion that someone failed to informed the doctor when it's the doctor himself who failed to do his own research, at least for what I can gather from the context.
