House's Team

3.01 Meaning

House has contradicted what he said about his leg damage in Three Stories and now has full leg function back! He's feeling so good he's taking on two cases:

Yoga Girl
Initial Symptoms:
Woman with paralysis but no spinal trauma
Diagnosis: Scurvy (House)

Contributions by Team
House (3): Proves patient isn't really paralyzed, realizes patient has cardiac tamponade, diagnosis for scurvy
Chase (0): None
Cameron (0): None
Foreman (0): None

Wheelchair Guy
Initial Symptoms:
Man in vegetative state after treatment for astrocytoma
Diagnosis: Addison's disease (House) caused by hypothalamic dysregulation resulting from scarring from brain surgery (House)

Contributions by Team
House (4): Realizes patient's throat muscle response is due to problem in his brain, diagnosis for hypothalamic dysregulation, diagnosis for Addison's disease, suggests cortisol to prove diagnosis
Chase (2): Picks out fever + frequent urination as pattern, agrees to keep treating patient with re-scan of head
Cameron (0): None
Foreman (1): Recognizes dry eyes are a symptom

Notes: Chase probably agreed to continue treating the patient to please House and not because he thought it was the correct thing to do medically, but since it was he gets the credit. It doesn't seem fair but that is the criteria.
I've assumed that the fever, frequent urination and dry eyes were indeed symptoms of Addison's disease.

Dry eyes & fever are NOT symptoms of Addison's. Frequent urination is.
