"As far as he knew, he was the only living person to have survived a curse like Voldemort's; it was highly unlikely, therefore, that he would find his symptoms listed in Common Magical Ailments and Afflictions."
Harry Potter on his hurting scar[src]

Common Magical Ailments and Afflictions was a book containing information about common magical illnesses.[1]


"What would they say if Harry wrote to them and told them about his scar hurting? At once, Hermione Granger's voice seemed to fill his head, shrill and panicky. "Your scar hurt? Harry, that's really serious.... Write to Professor Dumbledore! And I'll go check Common Magical Ailments and Afflictions.... Maybe there's something in there about curse scars....""
