The Diagnosis Detectives’: If You Liked ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ You’ll Love This New BBC Show

Episode one

The first of the episode of the four-part BBC Two begins on Monday 31st August and starts with Paul, whose dreams of a happy retirement have been ruined since his face started swelling so dramatically that he struggles to see.

Paul has been to several specialists but no one has been able to give him and his worried family a diagnosis – until now. “It’s distressing”, says his daughter. “Is it something life threatening? We don’t know.”

The team of doctors begin to investigate, all giving their separate theories.

Rheumatologist Dr Stephanie Barrett wants to search for evidence of an autoimmune condition; Dermatologist Dr Sharon Wong believes it could be an allergic reaction; and Professor of Respiratory Medicine Ian Pavord will investigate whether there’s a blockage in a major vein, perhaps caused by cancer.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Newsletter

The Diagnosis Detectives is a BBC documentary looking at complex medical cases. This week’s episode features Katie, and the lead rheumatologist’s investigations when EDS is suspected. Watch this programme here. 

“The team are also challenged to help 35-year-old nursing assistant Katie. In the last 18 months, Katie has lost four and a half stone, and after tests revealed that her stomach was not emptying properly, she has been fitted with a variety of feeding tubes.

The experts initially come up with two very different theories about what could be causing all of Katie’s problems. Consultant rheumatologist Dr. Stephanie Barrett wants to assess her Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which weakens the body’s connective tissues. There are no decisive tests for this condition, so she has to carefully examine Katie and then cross-check her observations against past cases from medical journals. Meanwhile, consultant endocrinologist Dr. Barbara McGowan wants to rule out multiple endocrine neoplasia, or MEN, a very rare genetic condition caused by benign tumours across multiple glands. It is a long shot, and not a diagnosis that Dr McGowan is expecting to make, but when she examines Katie and notices a suspicious lesion on her skin, her concerns grow. To find out once and for all what is causing her debilitating symptoms, Katie is sent for some key blood tests.”
