About this work

Description

[The book] follows the stories of people whose medical diagnoses are so strange that even their doctor struggles to know how to solve them. A man who sees cartoon characters running across the room; a teenager who one day arrives home with inexplicably torn clothes; a girl whose world turns all Alice in Wonderland; another who transforms into a ragdoll whenever she even thinks about moving. The brain is the most complex structure in the Universe, and neurologists must puzzle out life-changing diagnoses from the tiniest of cues - it's the ultimate in medical detective work."--Book jacket.
