This is also a chronic affection of the brain, generally without fever. The countenance of the maniac is sometimes flushed, at other times pale. The hair is crisped; the eyes injected, shining and haggard. Maniacs dislike the light, and certain colors horrify them. Their ears are sometimes very red, and are disturbed by a tingling, and a rumbling Sound. Noise excites and disturbs them. They suffer from false sensations, illusions and hallucinations; and their ideas come with great rapidity, and are confused and without order. Their affections are in a state of turmoil, and their judgments are all erroneous. Unlike the monomaniac, their delirium extends to all subjects. Their entire intellect, affections and will, are a chaotic wreck.
