14. A case of impulse to kill
DIXON Daniel J. (JAIH, 86, 1/1993) A 53-year-old
woman with lot of stress building up over the last couple
of years; she does not want to think of something
anymore; finds herself unable to be around a particular
person in the family anymore. Has the impulse to kill this
person, to do her bodily harm. Feels better if she can
keep her mind occupied; if not,she becomes weak,
shaky,and sick to her stomach with the thought. The
thought is constantly on her mind, an obsession. This
continual obsessive thinking creates a lot of guilt. The
person so much in her mind whom she wants to kill, is her
mother. In the past she has been very protective of her
mother. Frequent urination at night and at times during the
day as well.
Dem's pinnata 30 was prescribed. There was an
aggravation on the second day. The persistent impulse to
kill is only fifty percent. The remedy was repeated twice.
To the rubrics in the KENT, VITHOULKAS has
added a rubric; "Impulse of child to kill mother". The
Complete Repertory has added the rubric as "Desire to
kill parents, in a child ".

and rude and when he hit his sister and he was pulled up
for that by the mother he would weep loudly as if he was

who developed haemorrhgic spots and blisters all over
the body, enlarged liver and spleen, haemetemesis amd
hypertricosis, and which was diagnosed as "Erythropoetic
Porphyria" (a congenital disorder) and Crotalus
horridus brought about remarkable improvement until
the child went back to Saudi Arabia. In the second case, a
child 9 years - old with bleeding from pores of the skin,
was prescribed Crotalus horridus. In the third case, a 10-
year-old girl with recurring bleeding from nose, greenish
spots on the skin; since early childhood these spots will
ooze blood if scratched. It suffered from
Thrombocytopaenia. Crotalus horridus brought about
astonishing improvement. In the fourth case of a boy of
17 years with bleeding from body orifices and sometimes
concealed bleeding and the diagnosis made was
