Storyline

Twelve year-old Gabriel 'Gabe' Reilich thinks he's cursed after collapsing when his name comes out of a Ouija board game played with mates indicating him as marked for death. Dr. Robert Chase cleverly finds out about the boy's secret society's abandoned meeting place and suspicious substances there. Gabe's scary mix of suddenly appearing symptoms suggest anthrax and a rare, infectious tropical disease. Chase refuses to have any personal contact with his father, rheumatologist Rowan Chase, a world authority on auto-immune diseases, who suddenly turns up and joins the diagnostic joust. Yet House takes a stubborn interest in Rowan's reason to visit his estranged son now, as well as in Gabe's admired, separated father Jeffrey Reilich's past... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Goofs

Chase junior says that the drug given for anthrax would kill the organism causing leprosy, which will be followed by House's explanation of antibodies acting on nerves. in reality the drugs used for anthrax (cephalosporin or penicillin group of drugs) and leprosy (rifampicin, dapsone, clofazamine) are entirely different, and would not have caused the effect as said by Chase.

Scary and involving
26 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

A young boy goes where he shouldn't and ends up with one of the most bizarre and deadly conditions House and his team have faced to date. The kid is a decent enough actor, but this is an episode that relies heavily on makeup and special effects as the kid's condition goes from bad to worse to deep-fried. It is very unsettling to watch this kid choking and breaking out in what at first appear to be sores and then rickets or shingles. The actual condition turns out to be far more grave. This is one of several episodes where House's colleagues grab his interest in a case by describing seemingly unconnected symptoms. Patrick Bachau of THE PRETENDER and PANIC ROOM fame shows up as Dr. Chase's ailing dad, an eminent physician who abandoned his son many years before. Bachau is one of those actors you either love or hate, depending on your tolerance for big, broad-faced guys with suave demeanors and intolerably thick accents. I happen to love the guy, and he and the Aussie surfer boy have some excellent give-and-take scenes. Bachaus is what this show is missing, more than anything else: seasoned actors with some bearing and weight.
