Hey, can somebody post the illness for which Steve has? It would be beneficial, as a previous author stated that House treated him for a disease, but didn't specify which. This left me in the dark. Unfortunately, I sold Season 1-3, so i cant look myself. Extremofire 01:53, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
I believe it just turned out that Steve had some sort of infection that House treated with antibiotics. SteveHFisyh 22:03, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
Regarding Steve McQueen's ailment I found the following:
"Steve McQueen (named after the Hollywood actor Steve McQueen) is House's pet rat, which he captured in Stacy's attic in episode 2.07 ("Hunting"). Originally supposed to be exterminating the rat, House granted him reprieve in order to diagnose his odd neck tilt. By the end of the episode House had determined the cause to be mycoplasmosis, aggravated by Stacy's smoking. House has used Steve McQueen for medical experimentation. In Episode 2.21 "Euphoria, Part 2", House uses Steve to do a walk through of the Cop's home and stated that if Steve begins showing symptoms, as House saw it on his webcam, that there was a '"good chance" that he would be hit with a "cane-shaped object", and subsequently dissected. Steve never showed symptoms, however, so House did not end up killing him. Since then, he has been seen in the background in House's apartment during various episodes. It was revealed on the official House website that Steve has since died"
