Twitching of limbs (after two hours), followed by violent tetanic convulsions and opisthotonos; the spasms were provoked by the slightest attempt to move, the entrance of any person in the room, or the closing of a door,

During the intervals of his periodic convulsions, sudden and powerful shocks and twitchings occurred; these were produced or increased by the slightest touch. The twitching of the muscles of the face resembled those of epilepsy,


Convulsions recurring regularly,

In twenty minutes, convulsions, every limb shaking; short intervals of recovery in which she uttered exclamations expressive of great pain; the least motion produced another paroxysm, shaking so powerfully that it required several persons to hold her,

Every few minutes had a fit of general convulsions (after twenty-minutes),

Convulsions tossed the patient several inches up in bed,

Found in convulsions. After the administration of emetics, spasms set in, the head being bent over a chair; a relaxation of the spasms gradually took place, the heart's action and respiration ceased, and he died ten minutes after being brought into the hospital, from tetanus,

Convulsions came on, beginning with slight twitchings in the muscles of the lower extremities (after half an hour); violent convulsions every few minutes (after one hour),

Six convulsions in all, but only the first two were severe. He could himself foretell their onset by the intense muscular pain to which the incipient spasm gave rise,

Constant twitching and spasm of the muscles; the spasms and convulsions were frightful to behold; about six hours after swallowing the poison the convulsions culminated in two of the most frightful and protracted attacks of opisthotonos either of us ever beheld,

Repeated convulsions; every muscle was rigid, and tetanus complete,

Convulsions; she uttered cries and vomited small quantities of an apparently alcoholic fluid; severe tremors; the convulsive movements continued, especially on touching her,

Spasms of the lower limbs, afterwards he was seized with a violent attack of convulsions, during which the face was pallid and assumed a tetanoid expression, and it was impossible to move, or even touch him, without exciting horrible convulsions, which shook, not only the bed, but the room. At the height of the paroxysm the body was raised off the bed, as in opisthotonos, and then fell heavily. These effects were produced even by the act of feeling of the pulse, or moving the bedclothes. The arms were thrown above the head by the first attacks of spasms, but subsequently they were thrown violently forward across the body, and greatly agitated. The eyes, during the spasms, were open, not turned up or congested. The pulse became exceedingly quick, and the respirations were 44 in the minute. The thorax heaved much, and some urine was voided during the fits,

General tetanic convulsions and trismus, for six hours,

When brought into the hospital he had several tetanoid convulsions,

The effects produced by the action of Strychnia manifestly proceed from its action on the spinal column, and this is not generally of such a nature as to exhibit any visible alteration, even to the scrutinizing examination of the microscope. The muscular system is thrown into violent tetanic action, resulting in decided opisthotonos, and, notwithstanding this, the cerebrum seems but slightly affected, since the mind of the person, laboring under these violent convulsions, may be clear and undisturbed. His intellectual faculties will be unimpaired by the action of the Strychnia, and rational answers will be quickly given in reply to all questions propounded to him. The effect must be slight on the cerebrum, but the whole force of the poison is expended on the medulla oblongata and the medulla spinalis,

Very violent tetanic convulsions; the extremities, upper and lower, were perfectly rigid and extended. The patient trembled violently, and was on shaking mass in constant motion,

Violent tetanic convulsions,

In about one hour she was seized with terrific tetanic convulsions, which lasted several hours,

Frightful periodical tetanic convulsions of the voluntary muscles and congestion of the face. At first opisthotonos was so severe as to force him off the bed on to the floor. During the attack the feet were inverted, the soles of the feet arched, the fingers clenched (not forcibly), the elbows flexed, the arms bent over the chest, the eyeballs fixed and protruding, pupils dilated, the neck stretched backwards and twisted. The attacks occurred at intervals of half and hour, more or less, and were so violent as to shake not only the bed but even the house,

The sensation of touch is made painfully acute, and the slightest touch of a foreign body at once produces convulsions more or less powerful. The effort to raise an eyelid has produced a spasmodic action which seemed to run through the whole system with electric rapidity,

When falling asleep, at night, several convulsive jerks of the entire body (first day),

Body rigid, head drawn backward, respiration difficult and hissing between the teeth; these spasms remitted, but returned after a few minutes, with trismus,

She suffered considerably, and was strongly convulsed, for a long time,

Almost the entire muscular system rigidly contracted, with occasional spasmodic action,

General convulsion, with some opisthotonos,

Lying on her back, body rigid, jaws set, arms and hands flexed, the thumbs nearly touching across the chest, and the whole muscular system convulsed, with short jerky spasms, which would continue for about a minute and then remit, the muscles remaining contracted and as hard as wood during the intervals between the paroxysms (after half an hour),

Convulsion ensued; spasm of the posterior muscles of the trunk predominating, with opisthotonos strongly marked. When I first saw him the intervals between the recurrence of the spasms varied from thirty to sixty seconds. There was spasm of all the muscles of voluntary motion,

Immediately everything seemed to turn green, and he suddenly fell to the floor, with inability to move his limbs, while his whole muscular system was in a state of tremor. He remained unable to move for about five hours, when he succeeded in reaching the nearest house in the course of two hours by walking and crawling between the spasms, which were of frequent occurrence. Violent spasms occurred at intervals of about half an hour, and about four thrills per minute passing through the system (after twelve hours),

On touching him, great agitation and jerking, immediately followed by a loud, sharp scream, increased suffusion and redness of the face, mouth open and stretched laterally, lips livid, eyes staring and much suffused, pupils dilated, head thrown back, spine and neck bowed, arms and legs rigid and cold. The fingers were straight, but bent at their metacarpal articulations, so that their points almost touched the palms of his hands, and the toes were also straight, but bent at their metatarsal articulations towards the sole, which was very much incurved. The muscular contractions were especially noticeable in the stump of the left leg, which had been amputated some years before, almost conveying the impression that the cicatrix would burst open. The attempts to respire were attended with great distress, and suffocation seemed imminent. The length of time between the fits varied, but during the time I watched him the intervals could seldom have exceeded five minutes. A medical student, who took careful observations and notes of the case, states that "the spasms occurred in groups of two or three, followed each other at intervals of about two minutes," then there was a longer interval, then another group, and so on. During the intervals the patient was perfectly sensible, in fact, his senses were preternaturally acute, and the slightest noise in the room, the play of children on a green some yards from the house, were all noticed as exciting causes in the production of spasms. During the spasms excruciating pain, with a feeling "as if his heart was coming into his throat," and accompanied by a sensation which he compared to "plunging through a wave when bathing,"

The attempt of the patient to take liquids was followed by so violent a spasmodic fit as to prevent her swallowing it, and to give that apparent dread of water so well marked in cases of hydrophobia. Even after her request for water, on attempting to give it, she would find herself so incapable of swallowing it as to request that its administration might be deferred until the fit was over, the effort to place the cup to the mouth being generally sufficient in itself to induce a relapse of the spasms,

Violent spasms like epilepsy,

On attempting to rise from a chair was thrown violently backward, as quick as lightning, and remained fixed upon the chair for an hour and a half,

Severe spasmodic attack, her body quivering as though under the influence of a galvanic shock, accompanied with difficulty of breathing; attacks increased in violence; when cold water was applied to her lips the twitching returned,

Application of the hand to the abdomen caused the countenance to change color and brought on rigors (after ten hours),

Could not move without convulsive action (after thirty minutes),


Convulsed constantly with the severest for of tetanic spasms, and at times his whole muscular system was rigid and he lay in the opisthotonos position, resting upon his head and his heels, with his body raised clear from the floor in the form of an arch. Several of these terrible spasms occurred in the space of a minute. His jaws were firmly locked, so that he could not swallow, and the approach of anything towards his mouth caused a recurrence of the spasms,

Trismus, with the upper and lower extremities completely rigid, and paroxysms of opisthotonos and emprosthotonos occurring alternately. A paroxysm now took place every six minutes, each one lasting about two minutes, and during the emprosthotonic condition he uttered a violent shriek,

Contracted state of the whole muscular system; the body assumes a tetanoid condition. There is a superexcitation of the nerves, proceeding from the cerebro-spinal axis,

The effect of this agent, when given in small doses, repeated at regular intervals, are of a tonic character,

Violent fit of tetanus,

Violent tetanic spasm, the limbs extended and rigid, the jaws firmly fixed, and the body in a state of opisthotonos,

Violent tetanic spasms, lasting each of them for about half a minute; they lasted altogether about a quarter of an hour (after two hours),

In about twenty minutes he was seized with a most violent tetanic convulsion, which lasted for about a minute, with well-marked opisthotonos. The intercostal muscles were so rigid, and his face was so blue and swollen, that is seemed as if suffocation must ensue. He appeared to suffer intense agony, and uttered most heart rending cries,

Seized with a violent tetanic spasm, affecting the legs and muscles of respiration, and had only time to call out for assistance before the sensation amounted to that of absolute suffocation (ten minutes after second dose). Spasms now followed each other in rapid succession, the intervals being about a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes, and the affection was confined principally to the legs, back, and respiratory muscles, the arms being comparatively unaffected. The numbness and dragging of the muscles, which had been continuous during the first five hours, disappeared entirely during the intervals of the spasms, and the patient was left without any uneasy sensations, excepting the exhaustion of the previous fits and the apprehension of its successor. During the whole of this time he was not only perfectly conscious, but his senses were preternaturally exalted, and he distinctly heard a variety of whispered observations of the physicians and his friends. The paroxysms, after continuing for some time, began gradually to diminish, the intervals became longer, and the duration of each spasm shorter, and it was hoped that they were about to pass off, when all at once they returned in their original violence. This proved, however, to be the last expiring effort of the poison for the symptoms now entirely ceased, about thirteen hours after the first dose was taken. At the conclusion of the spasms, the patient was left in an excessively exhausted state from this, however, he recruited with great rapidity,
