This wryly humorous collection of tales about weird clinical treatments and cases offers a unique portrait of Victorian medication in all its grisly weirdness.

A confusing collection of dental explosions starting in the 19th century, with the maximum recent case within the 1960s, is simply one among many peculiar stories that have lengthy lain undiscovered inside the pages of vintage scientific journals. Award-triumphing clinical historian Thomas Morris has assembled the testimonies thematically so readers will witness Mysterious Illnesses (which include the Rhode Island female who peed through her nose), Horrifying Operations (1635: A hungover Dutchman swallows a knife, which is then surgically eliminated from his stomach), Dubious Treatments (Take twelve young swallows out of the nest . . .), Unfortunate Predicaments (together with that of the boy who honked like a goose after breathing in a birds larynx), and lots of different marvels.
