20 Strange Medical Conditions


There are thousands of medical conditions in this world that people suffer from every day. It is not uncommon for people in this world to suffer some kind of medical condition, and typically these conditions vary in scope, size and symptoms. Some medical conditions are not as widely known as others, including:

  • Alien Hand Syndrome,
  • Alopecia Areata,
  • Kleine-Levin Syndrome.

If you’ve ever wondered about what kinds of medical conditions there are out there that you may not know about, this is the list for you.

Here are 20 strange medical conditions you may not have heard of.

1. Elephantiasis can be a symptom of multiple diseases. A person suffering from this disease will typically suffer massive swelling in parts of their bodies.

2. A person who suffers from Hypertrichosis (also known as Ambras syndrome) typically has irregular and unnatural hair growth on different parts of their bodies. The hair growth can occur on one particular part of a person’s body, or can occur over the whole entire body. Hypertrichosis is also referred to as Werewolf Syndrome.

3. Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) is a muscle tissue disease. This disorder causes muscle and connective tissue to be replaced by bone. This causes bones to form which develop outside of the skeleton. As a result, this type of abnormal bone growth restricts movement.

4. Cotard Delusion (also known as Walking Corpse Syndrome) is a mental illness in which the person suffering the illness believes that they are missing body parts or that they are dead.
