Woman: Do you think he'll ever come out of his coma?

Doctor: I don't know. Cases like this are always hard to predict, so I can't say. We can only hope for the best.

Yes, cases is the appropriate word.

People might also talk about examples, instances or situations but none of these fits as well as cases.
