Hungry Evil in Epileptics. (Alien. and Neur., Jan., 1900.) Féré, Ch

  • G. A. Welsh

This is a dissertation on one of the rarer visceral symptoms found in epileptics. The opening paragraphs concern themselves with a description of the history of the symptoms, how it was first observed in horses. Passing from this, the author discusses analogues in the fermented stomach cravings found in man and the lower animals. He puts on record several cases to show that hunger may be manifested in epileptics as “faim-valle” is in horses, and is of opinion that, when it is better understood, it will be oftener met with.
