Dr Graziella Magherini, author of The Stendhal Syndrome, has studied more than 100 tourists in Florence, Italy, who became ill in the presence of great works of art. The symptoms include heart palpitations, dizziness, and stomach pains. Better antibiotics and other drugs to cure this disease have been invented since then. It normally affects the feet and hands and usually occurs between 1 to 20 years of age. Here is a list of 10 diseases that rarely affect people. The microfilariae reproduce and spread throughout the bloodstream, where they can live for many years.Nasty hemorrhoids seems trivial This often leads to fusing of damaged joints and results to immobilization in the affected body parts.
This medical condition is characterized by the thickening of the affected skin. Long-term use of these drugs may produce biochemical abnormalities in the area of the brain known as the striatum. Medical discoveries have caused this once incurable disease to be one of the least fatal if caught early treatments It also causes the red discoloration in the fingernails and teeth. When a person affected by this disease is exposed to direct sunlight, his urine can turn black, brown, pink or purple. There is no known cure or effective treatment for Morgellons. This illness is now curable by simply surgically removing the appendix, and often giving intravenous antibiotics following surgery to clear up any infection left in the body.
When two year-old Abys DeJesus grew dark, hairy patches on her face, doctors said she has a condition known as Human Werewolf Syndrome. Colon cancer is very curable if caught in the early stages. Many times the gaps become filled with fluid peel off, leaving the skin raw and open to infection. These blisters usually appear in the mouth, throat, lips, and random places on the skin. This bacterial infection of the brain and spinal fluid is a very serious condition, and emergency medical treatment is needed. They were the blue Fugates. Thanks to strong antibiotics given intravenously, as well as medical support for bodily symptoms until the infection is cleared, this illness is no longer considered incurable.”
Officially known as Alien Hand Syndrome, this bizarre neurological illness affects thousands of people. People with this condition have blue, plum, indigo or almost purple skin. For example, the misbehaving hand may do the opposite of what the normal one is doing: if a person is trying to button a shirt with one hand, the other will follow along and undo the buttons. This rare medical abnormality is characterized by the duplication of the human head. Sometimes the hand may become aggressive – pinching, slapping, or punching the patient. This is no longer true, and if emergency medical treatment is sought the chances of surviving this once incurable illness is very good. Some of them have pain and blistering as soon as the sun touches their skin. It is an extremely rare genetic condition that is characterized by the growth of tumors in different parts of the body. Many of the tumors will grow within the central nervous system and are often benign, but are made of blood vessels.
Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS), or micropsia, is a disorienting neurological condition which affects human visual perception.
Scarlet fever and strep throat are two related illness that were incurable until antibiotics were discovered.
According to British paranormalist Hilary Evans, some people are ‘upright human [electric] eels, capable of generating charges strong enough to knock out streetlights and electronic equipment.” Cases of electric people date back to 1786, the most famous of which is that of 14 year old Angelique Cottin, whose presence caused compass needles to gyrate wildly. This leads to another name for the condition, Lilliput sight or Lilliputian hallucinations, named after the small people in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. The disease came about as a result of cannibalism, which is a ritualistic practice in which the tissues of others, especially the brain, were cooked and consumed. In the much-publicised 1991 event, Neale apparently suffered epileptic seizures at hearing the voice of Entertainment Tonight co-host Mary Hart. Neither a specific disease nor a predictable symptom of a disease, Blaschko’s lines are an invisible pattern built into human DNA. Many inherited and acquired diseases of the skin or mucosa manifest themselves according to these patterns, creating the visual appearance of stripes. She said she bore no hard feelings toward Hard, who apologised on the air for the situation. The disease is said to only affect 1 in 2 million people. For example, Tiffany Roberts of Florida suffered a stroke and then began speaking with an English accent. She even adopted such Anglicisms as ‘bloody’ and ‘loo’. FOP is classified when the body causes fibrous tissue, such as ligament, muscle, and tendons, to become ossified, or to change into bone when damaged.
Perhaps the oddest case concerned a Norwegian woman who had fallen into a coma after being hit by shrapnel during an air raid in 1941. When she woke up, she spoke with a thick German accent. She was then ostracised by her neighbours. There is no known treatment for FOP, as surgery to get rid of the bone, seems to cause the body to produce even more.
