Syphilis and Mental Alienation; further Cases illustrative of their Relationships

  • W. Julius Mickle (a1)
Extract

In 1876 and 1877 I published a series of papers in the “British and Foreign Medico-Chirurgical Review”* on several of the relationships between syphilis and mental disease. In the first paper of this series were related a number of cases of intra-cranial syphilis occurring among the insane, in several of which the mental disease was the direct result of the syphilitic. The second contribution concerned the so-called varieties of syphilitic insanity, and particularly the acute forms of insanity, intercurrent in secondary syphilis; while the third article dealt with the differential diagnosis, and general distinctions between syphilitic disease of the encephalon (and meninges,), and general paralysis of the insane.
