Case of Insanity associated with Chorea in Advanced Life

  • N. M. MacFarlane (a1)
Extract

B. McD., domestic servant, æt. 64, was admitted into the Perth District Asylum on April 6th, 1888. Came from Perth Poorhouse, where she had been an inmate for two years. There was no family history to be got, and her personal history was meagre. Symptoms of insanity in the form of delusions of suspicion, hallucinations of sight, and irritability showed themselves two months before admission into the poorhouse. The choreic symptoms began to develop two weeks later.
