The Man Who Lost His Memory at the Dentist

Image: MC3 Margaret Keith

William, a member of the British Armed Forces then posted in Germany, went to the dentist on March 14, 2005 to have a root canal under local anesthetic. In a medical mystery that no one can fully explain, after the appointment, William's memory was permanently impaired. Ever since that day at the dentist, William can't remember anything for longer than ninety minutes. He still has some long-term memories from before the dental appointment, but isn't able to tell the reporter of this BBC article about him where he iives. Every day William wakes thinking he's in Germany and set to have a root canal that day. Read more about William's mysterious case — one which reads like something out of the movies — at the link above.
