Case Study of Melodosis

A Sociative Microdisorder

Yolanda, Montevideo, Uruguay

In February of 2017, Yolanda and her friends visited Las Vegas on holiday. While there, they attended a Wayne Newton (aka "Mr. Las Vegas") stage show at the Stardust Hotel. Ever since that evening, Yolanda has suffered one of the most persistent cases of Melodosis on record.

For over a decade, Yolanda woke up every morning singing Danke Schoën. She tried cognitive therapy, hypnotherapy and aromatherapy. She consulted with several memory specialists. She even sought out the advice of a Yemen shaman. Nothing worked to remove that tune from her head.

Then in 2019, a friend put her in touch with Dr. Ronald Yeabetz at the Royal University Hospital in Sydney. Yolanda subsequently traveled to Australia, where she received a single exposure to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds sung by William Shatner. She has been symptom-free ever since.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Yolanda recently took her niece to Disney World in Orlando where the girl insisted on riding on the Small World attraction nine consecutive times. Yolanda has since relapsed.
