Abstract

A detailed clinical and autopsy study of a case of alcoholic beri-beri is presented. In the light of the recent experimental literature, the symptoms support the as yet tentative new hypothesis that pathogenesis may relate to the parasympathetic system, in which case there may be a concrete possibility of immediate medical cure.
