House's Team

6.04 The Tyrant and 6.05 Instant Karma

6.04 The Tyrant

Initial symptoms: Man coughing blood
Diagnosis: Blastomycosis (Foreman)

Contributions by Team
House (0)
Cameron (0)
Chase (1): Observes hemorrhage in patient's eye
Foreman (1): Diagnosis for blastomycosis
Taub (N/A): Not in episode
Thirteen (N/A): Not part of differential

The original team is back together, with Foreman heading the department and House participating in an unofficial capacity. Thirteen and Taub are no longer on the team, but I'm assuming they'll be back.
It will never be known for certain but the characters seemed to assume that Foreman's diagnosis was the correct one, so I'm awarding it to him.
Foreman does not lose a point for not sticking to his diagnosis. I considered it, but it was the kind of judgment call the team makes all the time. I also considered docking Cameron a point for lying about the patient's mental state to his aide, but didn't because it's impossible to know how wrong she was and it didn't really affect his treatment.
Chase loses a point for murdering the patient. He should lose ALL points but I'll stick to just one.

6.05 Instant Karma

Initial symptoms: Boy with abominal pain + fever + weight loss + dehydration
Diagnosis: Primary antiphospholipid syndrome (House)

Contributions by Team
House (1): Diagnosis for primary antiphospholipid syndrome
Cameron (2): sees patient has fecal impaction, notices rash
Chase (0)
Foreman (1): spots irregularity on heat CT
Taub (N/A): Not in episode
Thirteen (N/A): Not part of differential

I'm assuming that what Foreman saw on the head CT was real and a symptom, but I could be wrong.
