1. Walking Corpse Syndrome:
Sounds like a character in a zombie movie, well it is a rare disease in real. Also known as Cotard’s delusion, it is caused due to certain imbalances in the brain due to which a person fails to recognize faces including their own. People suffering from this condition think they are dead and often spend time in cemeteries, wishing to be one among the dead.
2. The Tree Man Syndrome:
Imagine tree bark growing out of human skin. Well, it isn’t the bark in reality but a disease called Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis. What appears like bark, is warts that can get worse due to the sunlight. These warts later turn malignant in nature.
3. Human Werewolf Syndrome:

A weird fish smell like odor that is caused by an enzyme deficiency in the body is an embarrassing but a medical condition in some people. The fish like odor is a part of their sweat, urine, and breath.
5. Vampire Syndrome:
The fictitious characters like vampires were probably a result of this syndrome. This syndrome is seen in people who are highly sensitive to light. The condition affects 1 in a million people.
6. Water Allergy:
Since the body is largely made up of water, it may seem rather strange to hear of an allergy like a water allergy. But in some rare cases, even a slight exposure to water could trigger a histamine reaction for some people causing hives and welts.
7. Alien Hand Syndrome:
In some cases, the motions of one hand may not be in control of the brain. Although there is no cure for this condition, there are ways to treat the symptoms.
This condition is caused by a swelling in the lymphatic vessels triggered by a mosquito parasite.
