In the last 12 days, doctors in El Carmen de Bolívar, a mountainous city in northern Colombia, have treated 200 girls with common symptoms: fainting, dizziness, headache, numbness and tingling in various parts of the body. What triggered the reactions is still a mystery.

They have not been the first with a similar condition to arrive at the Nuestra Señora del Carmen Hospital.
