Hypochondriapp is a spoof on the modern phenomenon of web-induced hypochondria. It was made for the 2017 Stupid Shit No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon.

Hypochondriapp was built using Python, Javascript, JQuery, and Flexbox. It scrapes Wikipedia's rare diseases section, and simply returns one of the diseases with the top 3 longest names that matches any one of your entered symptoms.

Shoutouts: This app is a remake of an old project I did back in 2013 with collaborators Greg Eng and David Bella.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
