THE TEAM EXAMINES AN EX-MARINE SUFFERING FROM MYSTERIOUS SYMPTOMS SINCE RETURNING HOME FROM DUTY
WHILE HOUSE DEALS WITH AN AILMENT OF HIS OWN
ON �HOUSE� TUESDAY, MARCH 27 ON FOX
House is bewildered yet intrigued when he meets his newest patien, John Kelley, an ex-Marine who had saved House�s life in a very realistic dream the night before. House is puzzled about how this man could have appeared in his dream before he met him. Recently returned from a two-year deployment in Iraq, Kelley is complaining of fatigue, pain and other non-specific ailments he thinks are the result of Gulf War Syndrome. Just like the V.A. doctors before them, the team is wary about the validity of Kelley�s symptoms, but since his uncle is an important benefactor to the hospital, they continue to investigate his case. Meanwhile, House is suffering from ailments of his own � he is unable to urinate, most likely a side effect of his Vicodin abuse, and is sleep-deprived. Unable to concentrated on the case, he eventually turns to Wilson for an under-the-table prescription. While administering tests in the sleep lab, Cameron and Chase forego their clinical duties when they find each other (and a bed in the sleep lab) much more exciting. A foul infection shows up in Kelley�s mouth while Cameron and Chase were supposed to have been on the clock, and his condition only worsens as he begins to lose his hearing, sight and mobility. A brain scan reveals tumors in Kelly�s brain that were not there a week earlier when the government doctors at the V.A. examined him. When traces of uranium show up in Kelley�s test results, the teams wonders if the government had something to hide in the �Top Secret� episode of HOUSE airing Tuesday, March 27 (9:07-10:07 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
