I was at the bookstore the other day browsing through some medical textbooks and picked up a copy of "The Medical Detectives" by Berton Roueche. After reading through most of the book, I felt like I somehow read or heard about the cases before... then I realized I saw them all on House!!! The writers of House MD totally ripped off all the medical cases in this book. They didn't even try to change it up a bit, it's almost word for word! I would say about 80% of the characters/diseases presented in House Season 1 are in this book, and the case studies from this book are from the late 60's, early 70's. How disappointing.
