The patient
Woman who has been sleeping 18 hours a day.
How House gets involved
Cameron brings the case to him and he finds her interest to be interesting.
The mis-diagnoses
At first everyone thinks it is clinical depression but the team dismisses that and goes for a diagnosis of a tumor then they modify that to breast cancer attacking the brain. Then they have two different possibilities: Rabbit Fever and African Sleeping Sickness
The privacy invasion / major ethical breach
House sends Foreman to check out where she works (which hardly qualifies as one of their usual invasions of privacy).
The final diagnosis
African Sleeping Sickness caught from sexual infidelity.
The clinic patient(s)
Pre-school teacher with unusually large "silicon" enhanced breasts who is suffering from shortness of breath (House tells her her husband doesn't want to have sex with her).
From TV Guide:
A 31 year-old woman (Myndy Crist) sleeps 18 hours a day, and when she's awake she's irritable. It isn't depression, but it will be fatal if House doesn't figure out what it is. Ed: Dominic Purcell.
