  • C. Hubert Bond (a1)
Extract

My paper to-day—entitled the Relation of Diabetes to Insanity—is practically a continuation of one which I had the privilege of reading before the Annual Meeting of the British Medical Association last year, and which subsequently appeared in the Journal of Mental Science last January.

Observations in a similar direction were made several years ago by Dickinson, Howship Dr. Vide his Treatise on Diabetes, Vol. i., p. 62, 1877.

Put 5 cc. of urine in a test-tube, add “twice as much hydrochlorate of phenyl-hydrazine as will lie on the point of a knife-blade” (v. Jaksch), and one and a half times as much sodium acetate as is taken of the phenyl-hydrazine salt. Heat the test tube in a boiling-water bath for half an hour. Then cool at the tap and examine the yellow crystalline deposit under the microscope. [Extract from Stewart's, Manual of Physiology, p. 370.] The urine should first be thoroughly precipitated with acetate of lead, and then filtered.

Vide Brit. Med. Journ., 1895, Vol. ii., p. 467.Fagge and Pye-Smith, 3rd Ed., Vol. ii., p. 570.

Read at the General Meeting held in London on the 19th November, 1896.
