Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 5
AIRED:
Tree Man: ''Primetime'' examines one man in Indonesia who looks as though he is turning into a tree. His hands and feet are 15 inches around and look like roots, while ''bark'' covers his body. Surfer's Myelopathy: ''Primetime'' reports on a mysterious and terrifying threat that could be lurking for beginner surfers -- not under the water, but in their own bodies. Muir speaks with two men who tried surfing for the first time on a beach vacation and became paralyzed from the waist down because of a rare complication known as Surfer's Myelopathy. Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome: Imagine a woman who is feminine, attractive, and has always considered herself female, but as a teenager knew something was off. When she fails to get her period during adolescence, doctors discover that she has no uterus, no ovaries, but rather testicles, inside her body. Genetically, she's a boy, but despite her male chromosomes, she has more estrogen than most women. You Be The Doctor: The hour will also feature a medical mystery designed for viewer participation.moreless
