Editorial Reviews

Medical science has progressed exponentially in recent times, but scientists are still left with unanswered questions when it comes to the human body. "Medical Mysteries" looks at some of the rarest disorders and syndromes in medicine today. Meet a woman whose body exudes a strange and overwhelming smell that has resulted in constant embarrassment, leaving a job, and being ridiculed for years. Next, meet a boy who is blind, but that hasn't stopped him from "seeing." He rollerblades, rides his bike, even shoots hoops. He is one of the few known people who,like a bat or a dolphin, use echolocation to "see" by the sounds he makes. Next, learn about Foreign Accent Syndrome, where a person finds themselves speaking their native language but with a distinctly different accent, and they can't help it. Then, meet a child who may be six years old, but is living in a body that seems in its 70's. Then, a rare condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), whose sufferers obsess over losing one or more of their limbs because they say they don't feel "whole" with these limbs--their body image of themselves is that of an amputee. Also, for years a syndrome known as Morgellon's was written off as hallucinations, a psychological ailment and not a physical one. Sufferers are convinced that fibers -- blue, red, green -- are coming out of their skin -- and often feel like bugs are crawling on or beneath the surface.
