When six year-old Ian Alston is brought in with sudden bloody diarrhea, only House guesses a fatal syndrome. He steals the patient from Cuddy, ordering Wilson to keep her occupied at the benefit gala poker tournament. Cruelly chases Chase's date there to help solve this case. A case similar to a fatal one twelve years earlier (involving elderly Esther). The symptoms follow her pattern to a point, which is explained by the age difference, then converge again despite more ideas and tests. Cuddy finds out from the frightened parents and shuts House's team down, but he continues with biopsy tissue and a surprise move. Written by

The nearly-dead, and the newly-bred have more in common with each other than with people in the middle. It's weird, it's kinda circle of life thing.
