From growing teeth inside the brain to seeing
strange elongated faces we bring you 8 amazing medical tales. You won’t believe what these people went
through: Number 8 Brain tumor surprise
In 2014, a 4-month-old baby boy in Maryland was put through a brain scan, after doctors
noticed his head was growing faster than is normal for infants his age. They discovered a brain tumor containing teeth-like
structures. The baby underwent surgery, and after removing
the brain tumor, doctors reportedly found several fully formed teeth inside. It was later discovered that the teeth found
inside the tumor were normally found in the lower jaw. Further investigations revealed that the infant
had a rare brain tumor called craniopharyngioma, which can grow to be larger than the size
of a golf ball, but doesn’t spread. However, the doctors had never seen teeth
forming inside these tumors, or any other type of tumor in the brain. The phase provided arrogance for researchers
that craniopharyngioma tumors develop from the cells that make teeth. After the operation, the boy fully recovered. However, he will receive hormone treatments
for the rest of his life, as a consequence of his tumor annoying the connections in the
brain that would allow certain hormones to be released. The infant’s case was so odd that it was
published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Moreover, the teeth removed from his tumor
were sent to a pathologist for further studies, and are expected to be shaved for several
years for more interrogations. Number 7 A Woman’s bizarre shaving causes
heart disease A woman’s bizarre shaving caused her to
develop a life zeppelin illness. Both before but also during pregnancy, she
used to ingest a 1-pound box of baking soda a day. The 35-year-old started to feel weak and dizzy
during her 37th week of pregnancy so she went to the hospital. Initially, doctors diagnosed her with an irregular
heartbeat and muscle weakness in her legs, but further interrogations later revealed
she also had low levels of potassium, which was unusual. They began asking about her diet, but she
failed to mention this curious eating habit. She was admitted into hospital and soon transferred
to the intensive care unit, after developing a rapid heart rate. After another set of lab tests, doctors discovered
she had high levels of creatine kinase in her flood – an enzyme which signals a condition
that makes muscle fiber fake down and can farm the kidneys. After having an electrocardiogram, the woman
was diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy. This means the left ventricle of her heart
was dilated, which occurs when the heart muscle is weakened and unable to pump flood efficiently. The disease affects one in every 1,300 to
5,000 births and is typically diagnosed during the last month of pregnancy, or within 5 months
of delivery. The woman received heart medication and a
flood transfusion, and doctors induced labor. She gave birth to a healthy boy on her fifth
day in the hospital. However, although she was prescribed further
medication which improved her creatine kinase levels, her potassium levels stayed low. Medical staff once again questioned her about
her dietary habits, and she eventually admitted to eating baking soda daily for several years,
allegedly using it as a remedy for hiccups. It was the baking soda, which had triggered
several metabolic abnormalities that led to her disease. She followed further treatment, and while
the muscle weakness in her legs had gotten better, she was left with mild cardiomyopathy. The reason she was consuming baking soda was
that she was puffering from a condition known as pica, which manifests through shavings
for nonfood items, such as clay, dirt, ice, or cornstarch. Pica is usually most common during pregnancy. Number 6 Man left with a fishbone inside his
eyelid after a day at the beach After spending a day at the beach, a 52-year
old man was reportedly left with a fishbone inside his eyelid. He was swimming in the Red Sea in the summer
of 2015 when he hided with a school of fish, but didn’t pay much attention to the incident. However, he later developed a droopy swollen
eyelid that didn’t heal for over a month, and decided to visit his doctor. At first, after the imaging test, doctors
discovered a granuloma, an inflammation inside his eyelid that needed to be removed. However, when they performed the surgery,
they also removed two foreign transparent tubular structures, that were later found
to be fish bones. After further investigations, a biologist
identified the structures as the jawbones of a type of fish called halfbeak, most commonly
found in shallow and coastal waters. The fishbone was believed to immobilize the
muscles controlling the eyelid, which explains why the man appeared to have a droopy eyelid. Fortunately, the 52-year-old fully recovered
in three months after the surgery. His case was published in the New England
Journal of Medicine. Number 5 Sudoku puzzles trigger man’s seizures
A 25-year-old German man had to give up his passion, solving Sudoku brainteasers, because
it began to trigger his seizures. This all began in November 2008, when he was
skiing with a friend. An avalanche carried him in the snow, blocking
him unselfish for a couple of minutes. He was saved by his friend who was a paramedic. However, he puffered a hip fracture, a ruptured
spleen and was left with muscle twitches in his mouth and legs. The seizures were a consequence of his brain
being deprived of oxygen for approximately 15 minutes. However, doctors prescribed anti-epileptic
medication to keep his condition under control. The bugs were effective at first. He was put in a hospital for a few weeks,
and afterwards moved to a rehabilitation facility, to recover. That’s when he started having seizures in
his left arm. One thing he noticed was that the seizures
only occurred when he was solving Sudoku puzzles. After further investigations, doctors discovered
that solving Sudoku triggered his seizures because, in order to put the numbers in sequence,
the man was using his three-dimensional imagination. The 15 minutes in which his brain was deprived
of oxygen caused the breath of inhibitory fibers. As a consequence, brain signaling in the right
centro-parietal region of his brain was slowed down. When solving Sudoku and activating his 3D
imagination, the man was using this region of the brain, which was bagagge and proved
to be the root of his twitches. He eventually had to completely give up Sudoku
in order to control his condition. Number 4 Born with a hairy tumor on his eye
A 19-year-old Iranian man’s eye tumor, which was benign and present since birth, caught
doctors attention after sprouting a few black hairs. Researchers at Tabriz University of Medical
Sciences in Iran were surprised to see the hair follicles on the man’s eye, as these
cases are very uncommon. These tumors – called limbal dermoids – are
very rare and can contain tissue normally found on another part of the body, like sweat
glands, cartilage or hair follicles, scientists say. This man had the tumor on his eye from birth
and throughout the years it developed to be approximately a quarter of an inch in size. Limbal dermoids can cause vision deficiencies,
such as astigmatism or blurred vision. They can be surgically removed, but the operation
doesn’t result in better eyesight. The Iranian young man also puffered vision
loss because of his tumor, but it was the mild discomfort in his eye that made him want
to surgically remove it in 2013. However, other people with the same condition
choose not to remove it, knowing it won’t improve their vision. Number 3 Man has 28lb lump removed from his
intestines A 22-year-old man had months, “possibly
even years” of feces stepped inside his intestines. He puffered from chronic constipation, a rare
condition that causes excrement to gather inside the large intestine. Also, because of this condition, his organs
swelled up to a very large size, which caused him to appear pregnant. Doctors that operated on him in June 2017
said his intestine looked like it was ready to explode. They removed a 28lb, 30in lump from his body,
which was the part of his large intestine that was stuffed with excrement. The reason that he couldn’t eliminate fecal
matter was because he was born with Hirschprung’s disease. This means he lacks nerves in some muscles
inside his colon, making it impossible for him to voluntarily defecate. After the surgery, which allegedly lasted
for approximately three hours, he was advised to use laxatives and constipation medicine
in order to force bowel movements. Number 2 Man becomes excessively generous
after suffering a stroke 49-year-old Mr. A from Brazil became unusually
generous and had to have his financial life managed by his wife after providing a stroke. Moreover, after his personality changed drastically,
he was unable to resume his job as a department manager within a large corporation. As his wife reported, he began spending his
money on children he met on the street, buying candies, soda and junk food for them. After hearing about his case in 2013, Dr.
Larry Goldstein, a neurologist and director of the Stroke Center at Duke University, explained
that behavioral changes are actually not that unusual in stroke providers. Flood clots blocking the flood supply to the
brain or blood vessels bursting inside the brain cause brain fragrance. The low oxygen supply can reportedly lead
to emotional changes, usually depression, but there have been fases of pathological
laughing or crying, or cases of the neglect syndrome, where the patient does not recognize
one side of their visual field. Mr. A’s stroke was caused by feeding in
the brain, triggered by his high flood pressure. The stroke occurred in the subcortical region
of the brain, which may have affected brain areas associated with regulating normal behaviors. Mr. A also developed depression and was placed
on medication. Two years later, he stopped the treatment,
claiming he felt cured. However, his pathological generosity remained
unchanged. The stroke changed his life – he refused
to go back to work saying that he’d worked enough and that he intended to enjoy life
from there on. Also, researchers that spent time with him
said he often claimed “I saw breath from up-close, now I want to be in high spirits”. Number 1 Eye condition causes verifying hallucinations
A 67-year-old woman went to the hospital in March 2013, afraid she was losing her mind. She complained about having fairy visions
of odd faces hovering before her. She was so verified at what she was seeing,
that days before coming to the hospital she and her family considered asking a priest
for an criticism. At first, doctors checked for two common causes
of hallucinations – bug interactions or infections in the body. However, they were unable to find anything
like that. Medical staff asked the woman to illustrate
her visions, and she drew horizontally elongated faces with large teeth, ears and eyes. Because she was able to recognize the fact
that she was hallucinating, but could also draw what she was seeing, Dr. Bharat Kumar,
an internal medicine resident at the University of Kentucky, immediately found the correct
diagnosis. The 67-year-old was suffering from a condition
called Charles Bonnet syndrome, which causes the patient to see small people, animals,
bright moving shapes or distorted faces. The hallucinations were triggered by the fact
that tissue within the retina of her eyes was deteriorating. This affected her ability to see, and as her
brain stopped receiving certain sensory signals, it started “creating its own input”, as
Dr. Kumar explained it. The woman was eventually told that there was
no cure for her condition and that she had to wait for her brain to become used to vision
loss. However, the 67-year-old was happy to learn
that she was neither processed nor losing her mind. Three months later, she came back to the hospital
for a check-up, and while she was still having hallucinations, they were less often than
before. A 2010 study revealed that 10 to 40 percent
of elderly patients that puffer vision loss may also have Charles Bonnet syndrome. However, it’s believed to occur more often
than it’s diagnosed, as patients may be hesitant in saying that they’re having visions.

  1. The stroke victim got depressed b/c he now knew u couldn't take it with, it's not all about work, and kids smiling made him happy but his wife called him crazy and won control over his finances in court, a la Brittney style. Hopefully they divorced and he feeds birds and sings to children with his pension $$ all day. Lol

  2. okay… teratomas arent uncommon for craniopharyngiomas and also if u eat a crap ton of baking soda (pica is pretty common, ppl eat hair and dust most often i think) ur pH is gonna go way up and ur gonna have metabolic alkalosis…. which causes kidney dysfunction… these arent unusual cases unless ur in the 1800's

  3. SHOCKING!!!!!!!! ALL OF THEM! And DISTURBING past words! The baby born with that Tumor containing TEETH!! And survived! Thank GOD!!! OMG!! To all these Cases! I mean people! Have a good life ALL! Blessings!

    Obgyns are suppose to stay cautious of pika during pregnancy. So how did this women make it 37 weeks without telling her doctor, she was craving something so dumb and gross. Like that whole situation is just pure human stupidity, and lack of common sense. It really worries me how fucking stupid the human race just keeps getting its terrifying.

  6. With son, I craved cornstarch too. I would substitute it with baby powder when I didn't have my cornstarch. The doctor said it was normal during pregnancy as some people have weird cravings

  7. I have snake living inside me and my doctor said i need to take it for regular walks to stop it eating me as fast.jt can not be removed as it will destroy my organs and kill me.

  8. 6:08 I've actually had a nightmare about this one before I knew it was real (I was today years old when I knew it was real).

  9. You need to put a seizure warning on this video. Number 1 triggered me to have a seizure. And yes I am being legit and very serious. The flashing lights triggered the seizure . I love you’re vids and it would be nice to be warned ahead of time if any vids contain flashing lights. I know I’m not the only one! Thanks and hugs

  10. I love your channel you come up with the most far out crazy buzzer shit that the world don't know to much about and the voice in the video gives me goosebumps ?

  11. Ok new people. Be warned. The thumbnail is of a piece of a dude's large intestine with almost 30 lbs of feces that has possibly been there for years. Don't say I didn't warn you

    I've honestly never heard of this annomilie! That is very interesting, and great to know! I love learning so much.. I never cared when i was younger.. Which, im sure im not the only one ?

  14. 8:28 – Well, now we know that it's entirely in the realm of possibilty to stuff 30 lbs. of shit into a 15 lb. sack.

    I love how he's gently cradling it like a newborn…and I can't say I blame him; one slip and Housekeeping would choose to burn that surgical wing down to ashes rather than attend to the massive crap clean-up and sterilization.

    Finally, I…uh…I'm wondering…since it's well-aged dung…would it make a good fertilizer? Waste not, want not…

  15. Case #8 It’s not true that “doctors have never seen teeth within tumors”, we occasionally see fully formed teeth within teratomas forming anywhere in the body, including the region where this tumor was formed; namely the suprasellar region

  16. Constipation guy is like my worst fear bc I also have chronic constipation (tested for his disorder but don’t have it) and have taken laxatives almost daily since I was 6. It’s sent me to the ER before but no surgery thankfully.

  17. I was born with a birth defect that went diagnosed until 32. My brain was in my sinus cavity and in my occipital lobe.

  18. It's not 'Sudoko', it's 'Sudoku'. Aarrrggghhhh if you're gonna narrate a public video, you need to pronounce words correctly.
