I’m not sure if this one counts as an eggcorn. ‘Anomalies ‘are odd, peculiar happenings whereas demonstrating ‘anomalaise’ could indicate odd, or peculiar symptoms of disease/illness. Does it count?

Re: anomalaise

That sounds like a deliberate pun or play on words. ‘Anomalies’ are oddities, and ‘malaise’ means illness, so an ‘anomalaise’ is a cross between them—an odd illness or strange symptoms.
