Does anyone know any cool diseases with interesting symptoms?
We have to do a project about a disease and we want to pick a disease that is really rare that no one knows and has weird symtoms and cures.

Jaleel W.

UGH! WE HAVE TO DO THAT PROJECT?!?!?! I was not informed of this... grr! Well I've got one for you, mister!

It's called phelpsitis! Unfortunately, it seems like a only a few people are afflicted with it (Allie, Suzanna, Greer, and ME!), but I totally think it is a real disease because it seems like i have a very severe case of it!!!



P.S. if you dont appreciate my answer, other answerer people, i am allowed to do this because the person who asked this question is my BESTIE and he doesn't care!

Poloramayama. There is also this disease I forgot the name of that I heard of where your teeth dissolve into liquid and drip down your throat and then grow back.

Your question just makes me sad. Please present your topic with some empathy.

How about:

Pica - an illness where people want to eat non-food items such as dirt and wood.

Micropsia - also known as "Alice in Wonderland Syndrome" is where people have distorted views, but mainly some things look much smaller than they are.

Yes, I have one. One really interesting disease is Progeria. Although it is very noticeable it has really no cause. Although I did do this for a project a few years ago and everyone thought it was great and very interesting. The disease is when a child has aging symptoms-

-Hair loss
- Growing Defect
-Ages way too fast

Hope I Helped I Spent A Lot Of Time On This Because It Is soooo Interesting!

Try looking up sjogren's syndrome.

'cool diseases' - u wudnt think a disease was 'cool' if u had one

How about you check this out:


Pretty Interesting However It may be a bit hard to believe but who knows most likely it could be true.


Does it necessarily have to be a disease? Can it be a parasite? My favorite is bot fly (or botfly). It is often listed as a tropical disease, and you can find all kinds of cool stories and pictures about people who have had them.

ebola...you bleed out of every orifice of your body....

ACTH Deficiency

Morgellons is by far the "coolest" disease. It's so science fiction like that it's debated on whether it's a psychiatric disease, biological disease, or even a disease at all. Basically people with this disease are itchy all the time and they get lesions and red, black blue and white fibers come out of the lesions. I believe I read somewhere that when they analyzed the fibers, they were plant-like.

Untreated syphilis is really interesting as wellecause it will go to the brain and basically make a person insane

Leprosy is interesting because it has so much history to it and they actually treat symptoms of it with thalidomide. You're probably too young to know about thalidomide, but it was a drug they gave pregnant women in the 60's or 70's to combat morning sickness and other symptoms of pregnancy. Little did they know it would cause hundreds of children to be born with grossly deformed limbs or no limbs at all.

Kuru-- it's a disease confined to the Fore Tribe in New Guinea. It's similar to mad cow disease (spongiform encephalopathy). It causes neurological degeneration. it's acquired through eating the brain of an infected person. The Fore Tribe is the only tribe known to still practice cannibalism.

Buruli Ulcer-- caused by a bacteria that belongs to the same family as leprosy and TB, this one infects your skin causing nodules. The bacteria then produce a toxin that eats away your skin, tissue and nerves. It's mostly found in uganda and west africa.

Someone called for information on rare diseases?

A classic case of rare diseases would include Erdheim-Chester Disease. It's an autoimmune disease where the cause of onset is not well known. It's a condition known as histiocytosis, proliferation and infiltration of macrophages and lymphocytes in various organs of the body. Symptoms include the destruction of long bones, neurological ataxia, vasopressin deficiency, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and dyspnea. Diagnosis is extremely difficult due to the fact that there's only been around a hundred cases or so in the history of medicine. Treatment is Interferon, high dose corticosteroids, and surgical removal of fibrosis.

Wilson's Disease is a deficiency in the ATP7B gene that leads to the inability of the body to eliminate copper through the bile. The result is high levels of copper in the body that can lead to various symptoms including neurological problems with movement, esophageal varices, jaundice, hepatic encephalopathy, and other associated liver disease. A quick way of diagnosing Wilson's Disease is through the appearance of Kaiser Fleischer rings around the cornea of the eyes. Another diagnosis is high levels of plasma copper but low levels of ceruloplasmin. There's no cure for this disease besides transplanting a liver that has functional ATP7B genes. Symptoms can be treated by a diet low on copper as well as starting the patient either on chelating agents or higher dose Zinc with no copper supplements to stimulate metallothionein production.

Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome is a mutation in the HGPRTase gene that is responsible for salvaging nuclear bases to make nucleotides. It is a rare genetic condition found in infant males that results in severe gout and neurological symptoms such as mental retardation, self mutilation, and poor motor control. This disease, unfortunately, has no cure.

EDIT: To the answerer above me, I appreciate fans, but I hate imposters. This is my normal clothes. Unlike you, I'm not an animated character. From your answer, it appears that you also have the IQ of one, well played.
