The Production of Leucocytosis in the Treatment of Mental Diseases

  • R. Dods Brown (a1) and Donald Ross (a1)

Much work has been done within recent years towards elucidating the causation of mental diseases, and it is now recognised by most alienists that some forms of mental disorder are due to toxins, many of which are microbic in origin. At the same time there does not seem to be any general agreement that one particular organism or group of organisms is the exciting cause in any particular disease.
