'Everything I touch turns to gold, except for my family. It's a karma,' a father whose son is dying of unknown illness complains to House.
The medical world is tested against belief when a boy is brought in for treatment but none of the staff knows what happen to him. Next week on "House M.D.", a wealthy businessman brings his teenage son, who is suffering from inexplicable stomach pains, to Princeton Plainsboro and insists on having Dr. House handle the case.
The father of the patient believes the karmic penalty of his financial success is that he is victim to personal tragedy, and that the answer to his son's medical mystery lies in a reverse of fate rather than medical treatment. Meanwhile, Foreman and Chase prepare to present information on the Dibala case. Thirteen also comes to House to announce that she is not going back on the team.
Titled "Instant Karma", the episode airs next Monday, October 12.
