Student Brandon Merrell (22) is rushed to ER with seven symptoms. His college girlfriend Mindy fears she caused it by excessively passionate sex. No one syndrome fits all seven, so House postulates the improbable 10,000,000 to one occurrence of two simultaneous rare diseases, each explaining half, but tests not only disprove the theory, the treatments make him much sicker. The poor boy ends up in terrifying total isolation undergoing an agonizing biopsy. House now guesses his original symptom, a mere cough, was accidentally mistreated with gout medicine which caused the other six, but the pill theory hunt proves frustrating, and there is more to discover.
