The Signs and Causes of the Drowsy After-Effects of Lethargy

  • François Du Port


When there is no fever in the body, there is sleep and lack of sense or movement, the eyes are closed as if there were no vision: but, inert as is the body, yet the breathing is easy. And when there is catalepsy, though the eyes are open, one remains immobile, insentient, whether sitting or standing. This weakness of the flesh comes from phlegm that is not decayed, and the coma vigil from phlegm and bile together: but the drowsy coma is engendered by pure phlegm alone.
