Emphysema of the Subcutaneous Areolar Tissue occurring in a Case of Acute Mania

  • Conolly Norman
Extract

The subject of this observation was a young woman who was admitted to the Richmond Asylum, Dublin, on September 16th, 1898. Hereditary history not very full nor trustworthy. Father died many years ago of phthisis. Mother, who is a person of somewhat eccentric manners, stated that X— (our patient) had always been wayward, not bright and not easy to manage. On the other hand, X—, when she recovered, said that her mother was flighty and neglected her, preferring the other children. Brothers and sisters healthy. Patient did not “get on” at home. A few weeks before admission, she was sent out as a nursery governess. Does not seem to have been kindly treated in her situation: had a troublesome menstruation; became sleepless, excited, and incoherent. Actual oncome of insanity is dated a fortnight before admission.
