Mental Disorder in Cardiac Disease

  • Carey F. Coombs (a1)

I do not propose to attempt any critical review of what has already been written on the subject which forms the title of this paper, but merely to lay before you my own experience. At the same time I may remind you that there is distinguished support for the view that a close association exists between insanity and disturbances of the cerebral circulation caused by cardiac defects.
