Diagnosis: Unexplained


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A London Fortean Society event.

Early medical journals contain numerous cases which appear inexplicable to modern science. One Victorian patient apparently had an entire family of slugs living in her stomach; another started to emit urine from her eyes, ears and even her navel.

Thomas Morris examines some of the strangest tales ever reported in the medical literature, from exploding teeth to the world's first amphibious baby.

Thomas is a writer based in London. He as worked as a radio producer for the BBC for 17 years, making programmes including Front Row, The Film Programme, Open Book and Night Waves and spent five years at Radio 4 as producer of Melvyn Bragg's In Our Time. In early 2015 he left the BBC to write full-time. His journalism has appeared in publications including The Lancet, The Times, the Financial Times and The Cricketer.
