Medicine's Strangest Cases : Extraordinary but true stories from over five centuries of medical history Paperback / softback

Description

Medicine's Strangest Cases is a choice prescription of weird and wonderful tales from the history of medicine, featuring the German doctor who fought a duel with a sausage, the Harley Street physician-turned-novelist who invented a disease - and its remedy - to keep his clients happy, and the quiet and cautious Swiss scientist who inadvertently unleashed LSD on the world.

The stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true.

Revised, redesigned and updated for 2016, this book is the perfect gift for medical students, clinicians, hypochondriacs and history fans.

Laugh out loud and wince with sympathy with this rundown of the most bizarre medical cases ever.
