Day job: Medical doctor with an unhealthy obsession for treating bug-related illnesses and reading about weird and wonderful infections. Off-duty: reading, exploring new places and consuming large quantities of blue cheese in the name of ‘research’.

Disclaimer: although this blog contains some medical discussion about the diseases portrayed in fictional books, no part of this blog is intended as actual medical advice to today’s general public! Even if you do develop whopping big buboes that sound like they’re straight out of Daniel Defoe’s ‘Diary of a Plague Year’, you really should think about seeing a real life doctor. Pronto.
