    Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, might not be able to solve this medical mystery. Twinkle Dwivedi, 13, has had a strange disease sine July 2007, she bleeds through her pores with out any provocation by scratching or being cut. Sometimes she wakes up and her body is covered in cake blood. Doctors in Uttar Pradesh, India have no explanation, and villagers believe she may be cursed!

    actually, there was a similar case on House few years back - the patient was sweating blood and he/she had damaged microvessels under the skin or something of that sort - I would have to find a particular episode to be precise but I am sure there was a problem similar to this one on the show...
