The subject was a female, aged 47, who had an attack of syphilis three years before her admission in July last. She laboured under great depression, irritability, suspicion, and delusions that people plotted against her, that she was to be hanged, &c. She was thin and anæmic. Had slight ptosis of the right eyelid. For the first six weeks treatment was unsuccessful in her case. During September she had a transient attack of paralysis of the left hand and arm. Latterly she improved both in her mental and bodily states under the use of potassium iodide and quinine and iron. She had a sudden and very severe attack of apoplexy on the morning of the 11th November, from which she never regained consciousness, but died on the same evening.
