Patient of the Week:
Evan Greer, an actor who plays a doctor on a daytime soap that House watches.
How House gets involved:
House notices changes in how the actor delivers his lines and decides the actor has a brain tumor so he kidnaps the actor and takes him to the hospital.
The privacy invasion / ethical breach
He kidnaps the actor! Later he injects him with a sedative to run an MRI on him! And invades his dressing room and sends his team to his apartment.
It isn't a brain tumor. So the team think he might have a high level of B6 from eating a lot of sunflower seeds. But House decides it is a problem with the thyroid and wants to destroy the thyroid but the team do tests instead and find it is normal but the patient's kidneys are failing. Then they decide it is an infection and give him antibiotics but he goes into a coma. Then House decides it is an allergy to plants.
The final diagnosis
House was wrong about what Evan was allergic to but the treatment did bring him out of his coma for it really was an allergy. Turns out he was allergic to the quinine in the tonic which is supposed to be gin and tonic that he drinks on the show. - Shop Now
