Fictional disease

Wikipedia helpfully catalogs the major fictional diseases. (via Maria Popova)


  1. Just added Entitilitus and Imminent Death Syndrome, two *major* omissions. Seriously though, I can’t imagine this list will ever be anywhere near comprehensive.

  2. I read the headline as “Frictional disease”, and shuddered with horror as I considered what that could be. I am slightly relieved now.

  3. They’re missing Space Herpes from The Ice Pirates… Though more a mini Alien than a disease, it’s still a great line.  :)
