Considerations, Bacteriological, Toxicological and Hæmatological, and others thereto akin, bearing upon the Psychoses: The Presidential Address at the Annual Meeting of the Medico-Psychological Association of Great Britain and Ireland, held in London, July 9–13, 1923

Extract

In the course of toxic and febrile processes, such as occur in association with typhoid, erysipelas, malaria, pneumonia, influenza, psychoses may arise. Amongst the infection-psychoses may be counted also the insanity of the puerperium. In association with epidemic encephalitis various psychoses develop—a fact of significance in the problems of the pathogenesis of these states. Of peculiar interest is the occurrence of disorders of motility in the course of, and after, this disease, resembling muscular disorders in katalepsy and katatonia. A recent and valuable addition to the literature of this subject is furnished in an article by Skliar, who has had the unusual experience of seeing mental disturbances in the course of typhus and relapsing fever, prevalent in Russia during the three winters 1918–1920, inclusive. He also describes five cases of Lyssa in which psychotic disturbances occurred.
