In a place as filled with as many hidden traps, dangerous beasts and hostile enemies as the Island, there are bound to be some cuts and bruises. This page documents significant injuries and illnesses occurring both off and on the island.

Due to the island's healing properties, injuries that would normally take months to heal (such as gunshot wounds or broken limbs) can be mended in a matter of weeks. However, this effect can be erratic and unreliable, healing some wounds at random and others not at all; see healing properties for more information.

Fatal injuries are marked in bold. Note that this list is by no means exhaustive.
