Linnaeus gives this name to a convulsive disease, not uncommon in Germany and Sweden, and which has been attributed to the seeds of the Raphanus Raphanistrum seu sylvestris, Raphanistrum segetum seu arvense, Rapistrum, being mixed with the corn. The convulsions are seated in the limbs, and are attended with acute pain. See Convulsio cerealis.
