3.10 Merry Little Christmas

Initial Symptoms: Girl diagnosed with CHH dwarfism + collapsed lung + anemia
Diagnosis: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) (Chase+House) + growth hormone deficiency + pituitary tumor (House)

Contributions by Team
House (5): Idea to do gallium scan, sees that liver is shutting down, knows that illness is widespread and will hit pancreas next, diagnosis for LCH, realizes that patient isn't a dwarf and the LCH caused her stunted growth
Chase (2): Points out that ear infections may be relevant, diagnosis for LCH
Cameron (2): Knows why TB test wouldn't work on CHH dwarf, suggests illness is autoimmune
Foreman (0): None

Notes: Langerhans cell histiocytosis caused the tumor, which in turn caused the growth problem. The tumor and growth deficiency were counted as one diagnosis, separate from the histiocytosis.
House hit upon the LCH diagnosis unaware that Chase had suggested it earlier, so they both receive credit for it.
