Nurse Hitomi's Monster Infirmary (ヒトミ先生の保健室, Hitomi-sensei no Hokenshitsu) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Shake-O.[3] It follows the daily life and adventures of Nurse Hitomi, a cyclops who works as a school nurse, and her co-workers and students dealing with their human (and not-so-human) problems.

Nurse Hitomi's Monster Infirmary is published in Japan by Tokuma Shoten in their Monthly Comic Ryū magazine,[3] and by Seven Seas Entertainment in the United States.[4]


A school nurse's job is to take care of check-ups, injuries, and many other problems that students may have. Nurse Hitomi does this, but she also deals with far more extraordinary problems. She helps her patients and their abnormal bodies as they deal with everything from insecurities about their appearance, limbs that just won't stay attached and even shrinking spurts. But no matter what the problem is, Nurse Hitomi tries her best to help them.


Dr. Hitomi (ヒトミ先生, Hitomi-sensei)

Nobuko Shitara (設楽伸子, Shitara Nobuko)
