The Sherlockian Canon, as prolific as it is, contains few accounts in which Mr. Holmes as his medical colleagues Drs. Watson and Verner, solve cases involving frightening medical conditions. It strikes me that many more such cases were successfully solved by Mr. Holmes and his associates. It is unlikely that Drs Watson and Verner would allow such mysteries remain unsolved. However, the likelihood of public fear nod panic has resulted in the stories being kept secret. Thanks to the current Verner family we have now been permitted to read Dr. Watson’s narrative concerning these adventures.
