Koro- the oddest mental health syndrome I've ever heard of.

Koro-like syndrome in a Jordanian male

Especially since it comes in "epidemic" form. From the mentalfloss link where I found it: "Koro doesn’t just strike one unlucky person; it hits southeast Asia in waves of a mass hysteria in which everybody becomes terrified of death via genital retraction."

So everyone wakes up in the morning and decides that their genitals are disappearing, and they're going to die?

And another great article on it.

God bless the internet...bringing you more information on things that you didn't know existed for a long time now.
