Best April's Fools Joke in Medical Imaging

This year, Radiopaedia.org, which presents one case per day, presented the best April's fool Joke (1st April) in medical imaging. The case was presented as a real one as it shows here (now it has warnings that it was a joke):

The images look pretty crazy, but have amazing realism... (X-ray and MRI respectively):

I have to say that I googled Von Schlapp in the hope of finding about this strange disease, but didn't find anything... but I never taught the case wasn't real. Nevertheless, I am not a doctor... The making of the images can be seen in a video here.
