I'm really starting to think James did right.

That's horrible...

Though would it be farfetched of me to say this could be how James saw her, not how she actually looked?

Yeah, it probably would. :|

My guess is that it was some sort of rare skin cancer. There seems to be an absence of hair at the top of her scalp, suggesting hair loss from chemotherapy.

Or loss from alopecia caused by the degrading of her skin condition. Besides, catching skin cancer over 3 years out would have a low mortality rate, and even less of a chance of causing her other symptoms.

Ah, yes, okay, that makes sense too. Well I'm in the dark about any specific diagnosis then haha.

Obviously those are hemorrhagic lesions on her face. As far as what causes it, maybe hemorrhagic leukoencephilitis. It's both rare and fatal

I've always believed her illness was fatal 'convenient plot-serving generic illness syndrome'.

I think they gave her the most convenient and disfiguring symptoms they could and didn't bother naming her affliction simply because it doesn't matter. Only the nature of the illness matters, not its name.

Aye, looks painful.

So, it causes… that, coupled with respiratory issues and hair loss. It isn’t not contagious or curable (or at least the type that Mary has isn’t (curable, that is)). It’s rare (or at least the type Mary has is), it seems to cause weakness, the treatment causes some discomfort and pain (if that really was Mary’s diary) and it’s impossible to tell how long it takes for the disease to kill you. And it may be the cause of Mary’s depression, anxiety and mood swings (biologically, I mean).

MMY could be right though, it could actually be Lupus.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/lupus/ ... N=symptoms

However, the idea that it's fictional is still more likely IMO.

Seriously, I don't see why it can't be. I just like saying that.

House is right. It's never Lupus, except when it is.

I've never seen a Lupus patient look like Mary.

Ick... Poor Mary. My guess is it's some kind of cancer and the effects are because of her treatment... Possibly experimental :(

I think she's caught a disease caused by the plot de-virus.

Me either, but as stated in the link I provided "No two cases of lupus are exactly alike.". Mary may have some extreme, plot driven, version of it.

I still think they didn't have any particular illness in mind when creating it, they just kind of gave us a bunch of nasty looking symptoms.

That sounds extremely unlikely. How did you come to that conclusion?

Just a guess, in most rare illnesses, experts are always trying new things for treatments if there isn't one yet. Like I said, just a guess.

I can't remember where, but I read a big long something about her disease being a(n existing) form of tuberculosis that causes body-wide skin lesions, and is immune to most treatments for TB.

Anybody know what I'm talking about? I remember it made a lot of sense to me at the time.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least if this was the case.
