The classic murder mystery game Clue with a diagnostic twist.
Losely based on the tv series House M.D., the 'who' is a patient Known as Mr. D Bilitated.

Has he contracted Kuru from the Congo via cannibalism.
Maybe it's Sepsis from the toilet seat in Vegas, could have been the rusty scalpel though, or Dysentry from the tropical drink in...

       (In fact, the diagnosis is always Munchausen's by proxy. House's dirty little secret.)

       Doh, I feel like such a looser now.   

       HAH! It's working! Soon, we will suffer from lose stools, and then we will loose our sanity!
