Case IV. Phosphorus: Mrs. G., widow, 42 years of age, was afflicted with periodical attacks of Chronic Spasms. I called at the house one day and removed a tumor from the hand of her mother, and the excitement brought on the most intense spasmodic jerking of the whole body. Whenever a thunderstorm is raging she has these attacks, said her mother. They last two or three hours. I administered Phosphorus, 5m. dry, one dose. Thunder does not affect her now. She never had another attack. Her whole constitution and mental state have changed. She considered herself an invalid and expected no relief.
