Homeopathic remedy Mercurius Cyanatus from A Manual of Homeopathic Therapeutics by Edwin A. Neatby, comprising the characteristic symptoms of homeopathic remedies from clinical indications, published in 1927.

      (Hg (CN)). Triturations. Dilutions.


      THE cyanide of mercury has gained its reputation in diphtheria and takes its place at the head of all the preparations of mercury as a remedy for this disease. This is not to be wondered at, for it produces an inflammation of the throat with membrane so like diphtheria that cases of poisoning by cyanide of mercury have been mistaken for it. It also causes the profound prostration and the cyanosis that accompany diphtheria.
