Fascinomas –fascinating medical mysteries. A paralyzed teen
recovers overnight. A woman complains her breast implants speak. A man
and his dog become gravely ill at the exact same time. These strange
real-life cases and many more can be found in author and physician
Clifton K. Meador’s newest collection, Fascinomas. Combining the word
“fascinating” with the term for a tumor or growth, “fascinoma” is
medical slang for an unusually interesting medical case. These are the
extraordinary stories medical professionals recall forever and pass from
one colleague to another in hospital lounges and hallways. Every
medical professional has at least one fascinoma to tell, and in this
collection of bizarre-but-true stories, Meador retells some of the most
memorable. In the vein of Berton Roueché, the famed medical writer for
The New Yorker, the author of True Medical Detective Stories is back
with an all-new book of complex cases, where medical professionals must
often race against the clock to find clues in the most unusual places.
Fascinomas is an entertaining and informative collection for physicians,
nurses, medical students and those who simply can’t get enough of
bizarre clinical cases. Written from the point of view of an experienced
doctor, the stories are crafted in an engaging style that can be
enjoyed by medical professionals and laypeople alike. More than just
interesting tales, however, these real-life mysteries serve as great
examples of the need for doctors to listen closely to and ask the right
questions of their patients, even in the computer age, when so much
information is at their fingertips. Sometimes the truth is stranger than
fiction, and you never know where a crucial piece of evidence will be
found by one of the detectives of the medical world.
