Mental Symptoms Occurring in Bodily Diseases

  • Ernest Septimus Reynolds (a1)
Extract

That it would be impossible for anyone in a single paper to adequately treat of the mental symptoms occurring in bodily diseases is self-evident. For it must be remembered, as Maudsley says, “that it is impossible to be out of sorts physically without being out of sorts mentally,” so that the subject includes not only the slight emotional changes found in various diseases, but also the actual insanities produced by or accompanying them. All that I propose to do in this communication is to give a short account of the mental changes which I have noticed during a four years' residence in the Manchester Royal Infirmary, and during a longer experience as visiting physician to the Manchester Workhouse Infirmary, where I have charge of over 800 medical beds.

Read at the Annual Meeting of the British Medical Association, London, 1895.

In advanced, disseminated sclerosis there may be a melancholia or a dementia, but I have only seen these conditions when the brain, as well as the cord, was affected with the disease.

I have lately had under my care a case of gonorrhœal rheumatism, a boy aged 18, who suddenly developed most violent mania. Mental recovery occurred in a month.

In more marked cases there is also a total loss of memory of place, so that the patient has not the slightest idea where he is.
