Uterine Hæmorrhage Cured by Simple Drainage and followed by a Psychosis [Hæmorrhagies post-partum guéries par simple drainage et survies d'une psychose]. (Prog. Méd., May 3, 1900.) Zalackas

Extract

Alice C—, æt. 24 years, suffered from severe hæmorrhage after a three months' abortion accompanied by irritability of disposition, depression, enfeeblement of memory, predominance of hypochondriacal ideas. After repeated packing of the uterus with gauze steeped in iodoform and glycerine, the hæmorrhage ceased, and in twelve days the patient was quite well. In this connection, the author discusses the question of the causation of so-called post-operative psychosis, especially as regards the influence of gynecological interference.
