Insanity and its Relation to the Parturient State

  • Bethel Solomons (a1)

In acquiescing to Dr. Leeper's request that I should produce something for this Meeting, I thought that the best subject would be the relation of insanity to the parturient state. It is interesting to find that the description of the symptomatology of this disease only dates from 1875, when Fürstner (1) first described it.
