Study finds unique gaming disease ‘PlayStation palmar hidradenitis’

Based on a report from BBC, it would appear researchers have discovered a disease that has hitherto gone undiagnosed by modern medicine: PlayStation palmar hidradenitis. As one might imagine, it has something to do with “PlayStation” and the “palms of your hands.” See, using that controller is not only killing your (virtual) enemies, it’s also killing you.

According to the report, researchers emphasized the case of one 12-year-old girl who arrived at Geneva University Hospital in Switzerland with sores on her palms. She had recently struck up a fascination with a PlayStation game (sorry, the exact title isn’t mentioned) and despite developing these sores, continued to play. That’s when her folks brought her to the hospital. After 10 days of abstaining from the deadly activity, however, she was sore free! We’re sorry, but we wouldn’t call that “PlayStation palmar hidradenitis.” We’d probably call it: Stop squeezing the controller like you want to break it!

Our favorite line in the entire piece has to be this: “For the disorder to only affect the hands is very unusual.” So, wait, you’re telling us it’s unusual for this so-called disease, the one that comes fromusing a game controller, to only affect the hands? What other body parts are interacting with your controller?
