As reported by the BBC News:

A top doctor has admitted her part in hoodwinking a leading medical journal after inventing a medical condition called “cello scrotum”. Elaine Murphy – now Baroness Murphy – dreamt up the painful complaint in the 1970s, sending a report to the British Medical Journal. She came clean when the hoax resurfaced in the 2008 Christmas edition.
