A doctor in Germany was able to diagnose a patient with a bunch weird symptoms, because he’d seen the disease on the TV show “House”. The 55-year-old patient had puzzled doctors for months with the strange combination of severe heart failure, blindness, deafness, and enlarged lymph nodes. After seeing several different doctors, the patient saw Dr. Jurgen Schaefer, who remembered an episode where Dr. House had a patient with cobalt poisoning, and thus was able to identify the strange symptoms. Well, television IS good for you, sometimes.

“Doctor Uses “House” Episode to Diagnose Patient” is categorized as “life and leisure”. This video was licensed from Grab Networks. For additional video content, click the “video” tab at the top of this page.
