I'm sure that for a personal statement it'll be safe to just not mention names and locations - they can't expect much more than that from you as applicants generally don't have a huge knowledge of patient confidentiality. That and those reading are likely to be medical professionals anyway so it's not like you're publishing it to the world. So don't worry, just omit any specific information and you'll be fine

Anyway, an important thing is that you shouldn't be clogging up your personal statement with information about a patient's exotic (or otherwise) illness. It's about you and what you felt about it!

Yay

Are you planning to talk about it in an interview?
Well if they ask about it then yes but it was really interesting though

I'm no expert, but I think you can talk about anything as long as it in no way can be traced back to a person
Thanks.
