I love it! As a medical editor, I collect things of this nature as
well. One of my favorite was an author/surgeon who insisted
throughout an entire manuscript that he was "litigating arteries".
Please, can you cite said article?

I just discovered Pullet Surprise in Fromkin and Rodman and so was
pleased to recognize the term in the recent discussion and delighted
to learn about the demise of Lady Mondegreen. It reminded me of a
medical journal article that listed some of the self-diagnosed
illnesses of emergency room patients.
roaches of the liver
sick-as-hell anemia are all I can recall. I have a new one
from my neighbor, though. He was telling me about someone suffering
from oldtimer's disease. Makes sense to me!
