FEMALE HALLUCINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 7 June 1883

FEMALE IHALLUCINATIONS. Recent circumstances have directed attention to certain remarkable delu sions to which, females of unable ner vous . equilibrium are subject, either through hysteria or through similar disorders of the nervous system. Chercot and Bourneville give instance of the extraordinary self-deceptions that are frequent amongst hysterical pa tients. Dr. Legrand du Saulle, physi cian to the Salpetriere, Paris, describes in' his standard work, " Lea Hysteri ques," some remarkable oases of hallucination, where females labored under the belief that they have been struck or stabbed by others, even after having inflicted blows and wounds upon themselves. In one instance a young woman . was found by her husband lying on the floor 'of her room in a fainting fit, with. her face covered with blood. On 'reviving from her swoon she stated that she had been attacked by armed men; the Paris newspapers related- the case, and within three weeks,~ two similar events occurred in the Fren...
