DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Health's web site, March 2009) Every year, millions of Americans fall prey to real-life medical mysteries—ailments that go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years. Their lives are thrown into turmoil—sometimes their sanity is called into question—as medical professionals struggle to understand their baffling conditions. Mystery Diagnosis tells their stories. In each episode we are confronted with two medical mysteries. The stories are told through intimate interviews with the patients themselves, their families, friends, and doctors. These interviews in combination with photos and home movies, highly stylized recreations and CGI anatomy sequences and take the viewer step-by-step through a medical odyssey. Symptoms emerge. Tests are analyzed. Specialists are consulted. But still, something is not quite right. Time passes and the daily struggle continues. And then one day, because of a patient's relentless pursuit of an accurate and final diagnosis (or the determined efforts of their family or a forward thinking doctor) the puzzle is solved and an accurate diagnosis given. In each personal story, the patients, doctors and everyone involved discover the importance of being vigilant. They learn that medicine is often more of an art than a science, and that the journey to diagnosis can be a twisted path full of many surprises.
