Bridgit Mendler (“Good Luck Charlie) and Yaya DaCosta (“Ugly Betty”) Guest-Stars

The team treats an underage and homeless female patient (guest star Bridgit Mendler), but when her symptoms worsen and call for an invasive surgery requiring adult consent, House and Adams argue over whether they should contact social services. The patient confesses that she ran away from home after struggling to take care of her mother, a recovering drug addict. But when her mother appears at her bedside, a more complicated relationship is revealed and the patient’s mother must put the past aside and make the best decision for her daughter. Meanwhile, Taub has a difficult time connecting with his infant daughters and House threatens to exploit Foreman’s relationship with a married woman (guest star Yaya DaCosta) in the all-new “Runaways” episode of HOUSE airing Monday, Jan. 30 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (HOU-810) (TV-14 D, L)
An outside scene shows snow. Since the East Coast hasn't had much snow this year until a couple of weeks ago, it seems to be somewhere near now.
Patient of the Week
House has a clinic patient who starts bleeding from her ear and he has no idea why. Her name turns out to be Callie.
How House gets involved:
House has to do a lot of clinic hours these days and so runs into this case that he cannot diagnose and so admits her.
The privacy invasion / ethical breach / Rule Breaking
Preliminary diagnoses:
About half way through the show House becomes convinced she has an intermnitted berry aneurysm but Adams disagrees and when asked by the estranged mother, she admits that she doesn't recommend the brain surgery that House is trying to convince everyone is the girl's only chance since the aneurysm could burst at any time. When Callie collapses, Adams thinks House must have been right. But no aneurysm can be found in surgery.
The final diagnosis
Ascariasis, a parasitic worm infection
Who Came up with final diagnosis
House after Adams tells him that she thinks the condition might have some connection to a trip the mother and daughter had spoken about. House decides that if she went swimming in a canal, she might have picked up that parasite
Clinic Patients
In addition to Callie, House also deals with two brothers who are Civil War Reenactors who try for authenticity but end up dealing with the health problems of mixing that with modern polyester.
Additional Information:
  • House wanted to try skeet shooting but didn't do well. Adams seems to have done it before and uses that to win a bet he makes with her even though she didn't want to bet.
