Aurum muriaticumAur-m is a sycotic remedy causing suppressed discharges to reappear. Halbert has given Aurum muriaticumAur-m 2x with much success in cases of sclerotic and exudative degeneration of the nervous system. He narrates a case of disseminated sclerosis, the result of a fall; one of exudative localised meningitis; and one of Morvan's disease greatly improved under its use. This patient, a man cook, had hypertrophy of all the fingers. In some of them this had progressed till painless whitlows appeared. Analgesia and anaesthesia were present, and some atrophy of the muscles of the hand and arm. Brachial neuritis appeared to be the causative factor in the case. Remarkable improvement occurred under Aurum muriaticumAur-m 2x. Aurum muriaticumAur-m is particularly valuable in haemorrhages from the womb at climacteric and after, which are frequently of sycotic origin. Violent chill and fever. Hectic fever. Ascending stairs < Cold washing and cold weather >. Warmth <; throws off bed-covers.
