Description

Excerpt from The Retrospect of Medicine, Vol. 60: Being a Half-Yearly Journal, Containing a Retrospective View of Every Discovery and Practical Improvement in the Medical Sciences; July-December, 1869 A case of tetanus arising from cold is related, which was treated by subcutaneous injection of Calabar bean. A third of a grain was injected four times the first day with the result of producing only nausea. The same doses next day were followed by nausea, faintness, and perspiration. The drug was then discontinued, an evident impression having been made on the muscles engaged. (dr. B. Duffy, Florence, p. Another case is related in which the powdered bean was given in three grain doses. Combined with an equal quantity of powdered rhubarb. As much as 300 grains of the bean were given during the treatment of the case. None of the (le pressing effects which the bean by itself produces were observed. The case is chiefly interesting, however, from the fact that the bean was discontinued thrice during the progress of the case, and each time with the result of the spasms returning with increased force.
