Types of Traumatic Insanity

  • Thomas Philip Cowen (a1)

Several cases of insanity following injuries to the head have been admitted to the County Asylum, Prestwich, of late, Although we do not assert that there is a special form of insanity arising from “trauma,” yet there are certain types of mental derangement produced either directly or remotely by injuries. The five cases which are described below are of special interest and are good examples of certain of these types. None of them proved fatal, but the diagnosis is so clear in each of them that the pathological processes involved may be accurately described.
