House finally gets Charles to agree to be treated for TB as he points out that cardiac arrest while overheated is not a symptom of TB. He threatens to reveal the real cause of death after the inevitable [[autopsy (procedure)|autopsy]]. Charles points out that while he can accept failure, House cannot, and that is the difference between them.

As the treatment for TB proceeds, Charles' symptoms decrease and the team focuses on the symptoms that remain to try to reach a new diagnosis. Focusing on Charles' occasional [[low blood sugar]] in his [[cerebro-spinal fluid]], House decides it is a small [[insulin]] producing [[tumor]]. This would also explain the result of the tilt table test. However, such tumors are almost impossible to find. They decide to attempt to force the tumor to produce insulin, which would cause the patient's blood sugar to plummet, but would indicate its location. Finally, after Charles goes into a seizure during the procedure, the tumor indicates its presence. It is easily removed with surgery.
