Subject: CHAT: Literary figures in Medline

I'm currently putting together a training session for our pharmacy
regarding Medline searching, and I thought it might be fun to list a few

searches regarding literary figures that can be found on Medline.

A few that I've come up with already include Harry Potter (there is an 
article on "Hogwarts headache" in children -- from reading Harry Potter 
without taking enough breaks), and also Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (a 
neurologic syndrome involving distorted body images).

I also found one a while back on Tiny Tim (from A Christmas Carol) --
are medical articles on the real Tiny Tim and what caused his condition.

Does anyone else have any other examples of literary references in
