About House, M.D.

House, also known as House, M.D., was a critically-acclaimed American medical drama television series created by David Shore and executively produced by film director Bryan Singer. The Emmy and Peabody award-winning medical drama debuted on the FOX Network on November 16, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 21, 2012.

For eight years the show brought in people from around the globe, bringing intrigue and mystery in the form of unusual medical cases in a vein reminiscent of the mysteries solved by Sherlock Holmes. Furthermore, these cases were the catalyst for the discussion of philosophical and ethical issues and decisions, a lot of which were not left with a clear victor, but all of which revealed more and more of the character of each of the different doctors that comprised the team each year. In the end, while the team didn't completely understand (or appreciate) House's methods fully, the show gives a final hurrah as each of the members walks away with something they realize was the right thing to do after all. Although the mantra "Everybody Lies" is proven over and over again, the concept that "people never change, they only come up with better lies" is tested up until the last moments as the characters (and the show) drive off into an adventure left to the imagination.

Everything is challenged, nothing is sacred, and the most profound revelations of life can be found within the 172 hours of television given over the course of the eight seasons of pill-popping, dripping sarcasm, dark humor, and intelligent storytelling ever to grace the small screen of the living room (or large screen, if that may be the case, but then...everybody lies). This wiki is intended for your perusal to catch up, read, make new or more complete connections on various subject matter, or perhaps relive the funny if outrageous times given to us by actor Hugh Laurie and company.

Daryl was the college football player and pro prospect in the episode Moving the Chains. He was portrayed by actor Da’Vone McDonald.

Medical History

Daryl plays offensive lineman. He is 6’7” tall and weighs 310 pounds. He is regularly injected with lidocaine to deal with the pain of football injuries.

Case History

Daryl lost his temper at a football scrimmage and started beating up the player he had been blocking during the play. However, after the incident, he kept hitting himself in the head with his helmet. He was taken to Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital and his case was assigned to Dr. House.

Dr. Hadley noted that Daryl’s symptoms appeared to point to brain involvement. Daryl denied any recollection of the incident that brought him to hospital. Dr. House thought it was merely a concussion, however, the emergency room had done a CT scan and had ruled out concussion, stroke and cortical degeneration. The patient also had a full psychiatric workup. Dr. House though it might be steroid rage, but Daryl’s tox screen was negative for anabolic steroids. However, Dr. House thought the negative test result just showed he was using good quality steroids that are harder to detect. He noted the patient injected lidocaine on a regular basis. Dr. Foreman thought that repeated trauma might have caused a pituitary adenoma that caused GNRH production that would mimic steroid abuse. Dr. Hadley noted that wouldn’t show up on a CT scan. Dr. House allowed them to do a bilateral venous sampling to look for excess hormones and an MRI to look for pituitary damage. However, if those tests were negative, he wanted treatment for steroid abuse.

Dr. Taub asked Daryl if he had any deep persistent pain, but Daryl said that due to the football, his whole body hurt all the time. He explained that they were going to test his pituitary. Daryl asked how long it would take to treat, and his mother explained that he was supposed to be playing in an all-star game where several pro scouts would be in attendance. If he were not there, he would most likely not be drafted into the pros. Dr. Taub assured them if it was his pituitary, the surgery would be minimally invasive and he would only need about two days of recovery.
