Volker  Arend, Anke  Christians, Volker  Präkelt - The Diagnosis Adventure


Moving patients' stories and medical detective work

Too much adhesive cream for the dentures, a rare genetic defect, an extremely seldom autoimmune disease, a shish kebab skewer piercing the duodenum: the investigations into agonising, life-threatening conditions are something like medical crime thrillers.

Week after week, the producers of Abenteuer Diagnose of a television health programme "Visite" report on the most incredible cases. They visit patients and listen to their stories, conduct intensive interviews with relatives, therapists, and doctors, and through this often succeed in discovering the causes of some very perplexing medical conditions.
