At a recent meeting of the American Medical Association,^,, considerable Interest was given to a report by Dr. L. H. Zlegler of a condition called hysterical fugues, For «oiuc hundreds of years the nature of hysteria has been re- ccgnlzed by physicians. During Hysterical conditions various functions of the hunmn body nre disordered, Many ol the usual activities of everyday life are disturbed, •"•o that there are queer performances during eating, sleeping, worlng, remembering, listening or talking. The'word "fugue" comes from n Latin word meaning flight. The chief manifestation of hysterical fugue is the fact that the patient leaves lioine an:! makes a iouiiiey that cannot be justified by any reasonable motive. After the attack, the person who has been affected wakes up up an unknown road or in some strange place. As long ago us 1895, physicians listed three chief symptoms as typical of the fugue: 1—An irresistible impulse |o travel. 2—The fact tlrat the travel is accomplished without any accident and In nn Intelligent manner. 3—When the' patient wakes up he has complete loss of memory as to whut occurred during the flight.
