An unprecedentedly high temperature during a Congestive Attack in General Paralysis

Extract

A gentleman in the end of the second stage of general paralysis, whose symptoms, mental and bodily, had all along been mild, and who had had two or three slight congestive attacks, without convulsion, in an earlier period of his disease, with a temperature in each attack of 102°, was noticed to be very stupid; to be more than usually hemiplegic (he had been so on the left side to a slight extent during most of the disease), and on the following day twitchings of his face commenced, with increasing stupor. The convulsions increased, being more marked on the hemiplegic side, his temperature gradually rose from 101° 24 hours before death to 105° 12 hours before, until on the second evening of the convulsions, five hours before death, it reached 107·4°. He died comatose next morning, the convulsions continuing almost until he died.
