Patients whose symptoms go misdiagnosed until it is too late have some of the most terrible medical instances. Do they have access to the treatment they require? Even when something nasty is discovered by chance during a regular check-up or test, there can be bigger mysteries at play. One patient, a woman only known as ‘A.B.,’ continues to baffle doctors throughout the world. This woman was diagnosed with a brain tumor after hearing voices in her head tell her she had one. The woman claims that the voice also returned after her surgery and told her, “we are pleased to have helped you, goodbye.”

A.B. was born in Europe in the 1940s and relocated to the U.K. roughly two decades later. She married and had a family there, leading a normal and healthy life until 1984. From this year onwards, she began hearing the voices in her head that would ultimately save her life.

1The mysterious voices in her head

One night in the winter of 1984, as A.B. was reading, she heard a voice in her head that sounded nothing like her own. The voice gave her was an audible warning by saying: “Please don’t be afraid. I know it must be shocking for you to hear me speaking to you like this, but this is the easiest way I could think of. My friend and I used to work at the Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street, and we would like to help you.”

A.B. was instructed by the voices to go to the address, which turned out to be the London hospital. The voices also told her to get a brain scan since she had a brain tumor and an inflamed brain stem. She and the hospital staff were skeptical at first because she showed no signs of any symptoms. However, arrangements had been made for the expensive treatment and tests.
