Excerpt from The Birmingham Medical Review, Vol. 23: A Monthly Journal of the Medical Sciences; January to June, 1888 In the chorea of adults I employ similar treatment. As with some other drugs, as mercury and belladonna, there is a greater relative toleration of arsenic, Short of the development of its physiological effects, by children than by older patients. Arsenic succeeds in the chorea of gravid women, which is a formidable affection. I have lately cured a young woman of chorea, in the Queen's Hospital, by giving her Fowler's solution of arsenic in the way I give it to children, she being five months advanced in her first pregnancy.
