Internal Research Document: Confidential Analysis of Anomalous Craniofacial Dissolution in Security Personnel

Document Code: MEDSEC-199X-03
Date: July 1997
Classification: Strictly Confidential
Distribution: Limited to Authorized Personnel Only


This document reports on a singular medical case involving a 40-year-old male security officer, referred to as Subject MS-40, who experienced a highly unusual and progressive morphological condition leading to the complete dissolution of facial features into a void-like cavity. The phenomenon, observed and documented over a six-month period in 1997, presents an anomaly of significant interest to medical and security fields due to its unprecedented nature and potential implications.

Case Background

Subject MS-40, a security officer employed at a confidential location, initially sought medical attention for minor facial distortions with no apparent cause. These distortions rapidly evolved into a significant medical condition characterized by the disappearance of facial features, eventually resulting in a large, void-like cavity where the face once existed.

Clinical Findings

  1. Initial Presentation: Subject reported transient facial distortions, initially believed to be psychological in nature.

  2. Progression: Over days, facial features began to "migrate" and then vanish, leaving smooth, featureless skin. This progressed to the formation of a void in the facial region.

  3. Diagnostic Imaging: MRI and CT scans conducted early in the condition showed no abnormalities. Subsequent imaging revealed a progressive enlargement of the cranial cavity, with no identifiable facial structures.

  4. Tissue Analysis: Biopsies near the affected area showed rapid cellular atrophy and degradation, with no signs of infection or typical necrotic processes.

  5. Neurological Evaluation: Despite the extensive physical anomaly, Subject MS-40 maintained cognitive and sensory functions until the later stages of the condition.


The absence of known medical conditions or environmental factors that could account for Subject MS-40's symptoms challenges  medical understanding. The rapid onset and progression of the condition, coupled with the subject's occupation and potential exposure to unspecified materials or environments, suggest a possible link to occupational hazards, though no direct correlations have been established.

Security Implications

Given the subject’s security clearance and the sensitive nature of his work environment, the potential for unknown environmental or occupational hazards must be considered. A comprehensive review of workplace safety and health protocols is recommended to identify any possible links to this condition.

Ethical and Management Considerations

Subject MS-40 was placed under continuous medical surveillance, with all care provided in adherence to ethical standards. The unique nature of the condition required the development of specialized care protocols, emphasizing the subject's psychological and physical well-being.


The case of Subject MS-40 represents a critical point of interest for both medical research and occupational health within security operations. Further investigation into similar occurrences, environmental assessments, and cross-disciplinary research are imperative to understand the etiology of this condition and prevent future cases.


These images have been compiled to provide a visual record of the condition's development over a six-month period, from initial symptom manifestation to the current state.
