Episode Summary

A young part-time student has been living happily with her new husband, when suddenly, she feels a throbbing headache. Initially, she appears to have the flu, then meningitis. Soon, though, she starts experiencing hallucinations. Doctors start to believe that she is schizophrenic, but it turns out that actually, she has a teratoma on her ovaries that contains brain cells. An eight-year-old boy suddenly starts worrying his parents when he comes down with a stomachache and vomits. It appears to be simple food poisoning, but soon, the boy begins experiencing intense pain and swelling in his legs. It becomes clear that he has been suffering from a disease in which the flu virus attacks the muscle cells. A self-employed plumber was taking night shifts when he starts vomiting. He attempts to hide his condition and just deal with it, butthe next thing he does isstarts misspelling common words. It is suspected that he has stomach cancer, and he loses his appetite. However, further examinations indicate that the man has actually been infected by the Blastocystis hominis parasite.
