no history of grief or traumatism. The most peculiar symptoms about it were its tubercular small hard nodules in the gland, a superficial string extending to the axilla. Previously had suffered from severe headaches.
since the growths appeared, headaches ceased. The nipple was retracted. On account of tubercular character of growth, the history of former headaches, which were similar to those of Tuberculinum, I gave the patient one dose. In 48 hours burning, lancinating pains began in the growths.
had previously suffered from burning pain which was palliated by sedatives. The burning, lancinating pains continued two or three days, then gradually disappeared. The retraction of nipple was less marked, the tubercles softened, the pains disappeared and general health promptly improved.
Tuberculinum, a typical case.
Howard L., 28 years of age, a resident of Attleboro, Mass., was indisposed in the fall of 1898, troubled with hoarseness and gastric ailments. A neighbouring physician was called who had attended the young man's family for many years. This physician commenced in September, 1898, to inject Tuberculin (Koch's), and up to December had injected his toxin twice a week for several weeks, and then once in two weeks the remainder of the time. The result? At the time of the commencement of this treatment Mr. L. could work and eat comfortably.
soon his stomach rebelled against food and the bowels became constipated, his hoarseness increased and distressing, suffocative spells set in every forenoon, lasting an hour or so.
he would then be able to breathe well the rest of the day.
In January, 1899, I was summoned hastily in the night and found him laboring for breath, the noise of his breathing audible from the street. His first words were "My God, help me.
Suddenly became unconscious while sewing or talking, began screaming, tearing her hair, beating her head with her fists, or trying to dash it against the wall or floor.
attacks daily for a month, then spasms set in, with rolling of head from side to side and moaning.
continuing five weeks, followed by a recurrence of fainting fits, at least twice a week.
a few hours before an attack of fainting, a shuddering like a chill seemed to go from brain down spine.
when questioned about an attack, she said head would suddenly seem to swell over eyes and pain became "horrid" and she knew no more.
between attacks she was free from all complaints except fatigue and an ever-present frontal headache. - Swanp.
