A generic name for a certain number of diseases, the chief symptom of which is a very acute pain, exacerbating or intermitting, which follows the course of a nervous branch, extends to its ramifications, and seems, therefore, to be seated in the nerve. The principal neuralgiae have been distinguished by the names facial (of which the infra-orbitar, maxillary, and frontal are but divisions)-the ilia-scratal, femaro-paplieal, femara-pretibial, plantar, and cubito-digital. A division of anamalaus neuralgiae has likewise been admitted. All varietics of neuralgia are obstinate, and the greatest diversity of means has been made use of :-bleeding, general and local,-emetics, purgatives, rubefacients, vesicants, actual cautery, narcotics, mercurial frictions, electricity; destruction of a portion of the nerve, &c. This plan of treatment, continued for a month or two, will often relieve, and ultimately remove this much dreaded affection. The mode in which it acts is by no means clear; but it is almost as certain as any other remedy used in disease in producing its salutary effects. The bowels must be kept free; and all inflammatory symptoms removed during its administration.
