Swelling of one of the cervical glands (very remarkable, since, in her whole life, she had never suffered from her glands).

examination showed on the anterior portion of the neck, between the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage, a swelling of the lymphatic gland as large as a Juglans Regia walnut, which was painless and easily movable (after sixteen days),.

Frequent transient stitches, at times excessively violent, in both breasts, with such painful sensitiveness that she could scarcely endure the pressure of her linen or of the bed covering.

it seemed as though an angry ulcer was forming deep in the substance of the breast.

motion and touch aggravated it.

this trouble lasted three weeks, was most violent at night, frequently waking her from sleep.

it gradually disappeared with the goitre (thirty-fifth day),.


Great weakness,

One of the most remarkable characteristics about Agaricus Phalloides is, that its poisonous effects do not develop until ten to twelve hours after eating it. (Colchicum Autumnale Colchicum resembles it in this respect.) The fungus is exceedingly fatal.

twenty-three out of thirty-eight cases died (Boudier). Other collected cases show thirteen out of twenty-nine (Husemann). The effects of Agaricus Phalloides resemble most clearly a most violent attack of cholera.

A woman, aet. thirty-three years, ate a quantity of the mushrooms at dinner. At 10 P.M. she was taken with a very severe headache and intense thirst, soon followed by pains in the abdomen, vomiting of black substances, but no stools. At 4 A.M. she had an emetic and a cathartic, which produced profuse vomiting and diarrhoea. The next day she was admitted to the hospital.

the skin was cold and dry, the eyes sunken, the face had the aspect of one suffering from cholera.

the pains in the abdomen were very severe, and forced cries from the patient. The vomiting and hiccough continued, and the patient complained excessively of burning heat in the throat, and of violent pains in the articulations, especially of the ankles, aggravated by movement. The abdomen was very sensitive, but not tympanitic. The pulse was small and rapid, the body very cold, but the extremities were not Viola Odorata violet. The cutaneous sensibility was decidedly diminished, especially over the chest, abdomen, thighs, and arms. The pupils were irregularly and considerably contracted, the left forming a mere black central point, the right being a little larger.

both were insensible to light. She responded slowly to questions, constantly complained of the articular pains, from time to time became much agitated and uttered cries. There were frequently involuntary black stools, without tenesmus. The temperature was 36.6°.

A woman, aet. thirty-three years, ate some of the mushrooms. Eight hours afterwards she noticed weakness of the limbs and intense thirst.

about 9 o'clock she was seized with the most intense pains in the abdomen. At 11 o'clock there were vomiting and diarrhoea, with tenesmus.

the vomiting was incessant, accompanied by very violent pain in the pit of the stomach and throat. Extreme restlessness caused by the pain.

she could not remain in bed. Thirst was intense, but she vomited everything she took. The next day, at 5 P.M., the skin was cold and dry, there was profound prostration, and the stomach and abdomen were painful. There was incessant hiccough, from time to time, accompanied by regurgitations. Pulse small, rapid. Heart's action very feeble, but not irregular. Diarrhoea very profuse, without odor. There was no urine. Pupils contracted, but mobile. Skin cool, temperature 37.8°. She received syrup of ether, coffee, and Digitalis Purpurea digitalis.

A man was brought to the hospital in a state of profound coma.

the face was bluish, cyanotic, eyes sunken, devoid of expression, pupils contracted, heart's action very slow, exceedingly feeble. Pulse imperceptible, respiration stertorous. Extremities cold.

Two hours afterwards seized with headache, giddiness, violent pain in the stomach, sickness, ardent thirst, and trembling of all the limbs, and had ultimately fallen into a comatose state. The mother and eldest son, who was an adult, vomited freely, with considerable relief.

the others passed the whole night under violent pain in the stomach, great sickness and retching, ischuria, tenesmus, and general convulsions. In the morning all dangerous symptoms had subsided, except in the youngest boy, who had refused to take the emetic, and who was senseless, with general convulsions, trismus, tympanitis, and great dyspnoea.

his eyes were staring, the countenance flushed, the extremities cold, and the pulse hard and intermitting. Under these symptoms he died, apparently suffocated. The others complained of very violent colic, pains around the navel, and giddiness, and one of the girls was affected with hiccough,.
