Russula foetens, Fries. Natural order: Fungi.
Nausea, colic, vomiting, diarrhoea, cold extremities, and cyanosis of the face. Pupils at one time normal, at another contracted; constant trembling of the muscles, at times interrupted by tonic contractions, increasing to general clonic spasms, with complete loss of consciousness. Involuntary micturition. Pulse at first small and contracted, rose after emetics to 100, but soon again fell to 80. Consciousness returned on the third day, the patient could hear but was completely blind. The muscular spasms, the deathly anxiety, and the dyspnoea gradually disappeared, but for three days there were constant hallucinations of mind. This attack was followed by pseudo-erysipelas on the elbows and painless furuncles over the whole body, especially on the scapulae and small of the back. The patient recovered after two or three weeks.
