Storyline

When six year-old Ian Alston is brought in with sudden bloody diarrhea, only House guesses a fatal syndrome. He steals the patient from Cuddy, ordering Wilson to keep her occupied at the benefit gala poker tournament. Cruelly chases Chase's date there to help solve this case. A case similar to a fatal one twelve years earlier (involving elderly Esther). The symptoms follow her pattern to a point, which is explained by the age difference, then converge again despite more ideas and tests. Cuddy finds out from the frightened parents and shuts House's team down, but he continues with biopsy tissue and a surprise move. Written by KGF Vissers

A House Obsessed
10 September 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

When a young boy comes down with a mystery ailment that proved fatal in an elderly female patient 12 years before, House becomes a man obsessed in finding a solution before time runs out. To say he goes to extremes in this episode is no exaggeration. He risks losing everything, including his career and that of his staff, to find the solution. This is one of those Very Sick Kid episodes, which can prove very disturbing to the sensitive among you. It is not unlike the Very Sick Baby episodes, which don't always come out the way we'd like -- and this is a good thing, as life works that way sometimes. I know. I worked in a city hospital as a student. At this point in the second season, I have noticed that HOUSE has begun using increasingly graphic segments featuring more frequent invasive procedures such as lumbar punctures and close-up surgeries. It has gone way past ER in this respect, but it also has turned out to be better than ER. And I loved ER, at least the first five seasons. HOUSE meanwhile has been renewed with good reason for a third season, and as of this writing, the third season has kicked off.
