Very acute itching on the hands, which became red.

after some hours there developed vesicles filled with transparent liquid, and surrounded by a very red areola.

these vesicles were more numerous between the fingers than on the rest of the hand.

they showed a general disposition to become clustered, and were somewhat like the pustules occasioned by the itch insect.

on the next day, the itching became very violent, the vesicles completely covered both hands, the itching was almost intolerable, especially at night.

when the vesicles became confluent, very large phlyctenules developed and resembled an incomplete vesication by cantharides.

this condition persisted ten or twelve days, after which the inflammation subsided and the hands desquamated. Even after three weeks small vesicles continued to appear in the palms of the hands, and were disposed to form groups, as if caused by the bites of insects. Very great itching developed on the great toes, and a crop of vesicles identical with those between the hands.

this eruption on the feet was certainly not caused by direct contact of Rue, but resulted from the infection of the hands, and did not occur until several days after the trouble commenced on the hands. The next year the same man came again in contact with the leaves.

the effects were more intense than before.

for three months the hands seemed denuded of skin, they looked as if they had been boiled, and were completely excoriated.

there was also intense fever, keeping the patient in bed five or six days,.

Next morning he observed that both his hands were remarkably red and warm.

on the third day the redness and pain had increased to such an extent that the sensation was as if both hands had been exposed to scalding vapors.

he rubbed them gently with sweet oil.

towards evening they were densely covered with water blisters, especially at the tips of the fingers, which had been most exposed to the pollen.

on the fourth day the swelling of the hands.

still continued to a considerable extent, between the blisters they showed a dark-red color with a bluish tinge.

on the fifth and sixth days the swelling likewise spread over the posterior surface of the arm as far as the elbow.

embrocations of Chamomilla Chamomile and Elderflowers were applied, and the blisters were opened.

within the space of four weeks the epidermis of the hands gradually peeled off, even in localities where no blisters had existed,.

Frequent pressure for stool, with prolapsus of the rectum, that after this frequently took place, with a sensation of pressure, also with emission of much flatus.

the slightest stooping, and still more crouching down, caused the rectum to protrude (after seventy-two hours).

for several days afterwards the rectum remained protruding all the time, and though it could be reduced easily and without pain, yet it immediately protruded again,.

It seems as though she could no longer hold her water, with an excessively urgent desire, even if there was only a single drop of urine.

during and after micturition very painful burning in the vagina and long continued pressure.

during the night, however, she could sleep quietly as usual, but in the morning she was obliged to urinate in the same manner as on the previous day,.

Miscarriage of dead children at about seven months.

this was followed after two days by violent fever and delirium, with spasms, succeeded by great exhaustion and vomiting of bile.

for five days the patient lay in a condition resembling partial intoxication, with contracted pupils.

swollen coated tongue.

slight delirium and very slow pulse, only 30 to the minute, and at times convulsive spasms of the arms.

vomiting and painful tension in the epigastric region.

the abdomen was soft and painless.

after a while the lochiae returned.

the patient gradually recovered, though she was very weak for a long time, and the great slowness of the pulse, continued for many days,.

Formication on the thigh, so that he was obliged to scratch the side upon which he was not lying,
