Summary:
How might rare medical conditions be a force for good? This probing documentary reveals the extraordinary people who are helping international scientists make medical breakthroughs. A woman who can smell Parkinson's disease helps doctors find a new way to diagnose this debilitating condition. A pioneering stem cell trial provides hope for those with multiple sclerosis. And a patient's inability to sense pain inspires a new generation of pain relief. The World's Most Extraordinary People meets the scientists and patients at the heart of these stories - and takes us right to the edge of scientific understanding. This time, we uncover the stories of a man with bones as dense as granite, a girl whose arm won't stop growing, and a woman who gets lost in her own home.
