In 1961, Leonid Rogozov, 27, was the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. During the expedition, he felt severe pain in the stomach and had a high fever.

Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (Ondine’s Curse) People who suffer from CCHS are unable to involuntarily breathe sufficiently during sleep. It’s acquired at birth or during severe trauma to the brain stem. In the most serious cases of the disease, people are unable to sleep because they would die. Typically, this occurs among newborns, but there have been cases where the disease progressed from minor to life-threatening – those people are required to use ventilators.
