Source: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms
When the _brain_ is affected, the patient suddenly complains of violent
headache, vomits repeatedly, loses his eye-sight, has furious delirium,
or coma (a state of sleep from which it is difficult to rouse the
patient); his pupils dilate; the pulse becomes small, intermits;
sometimes the skin becomes cold; there is dyspnoea (difficulty of
breathing), fainting, paralysis, convulsions, and finally death; or,
sometimes, the paroxysm passes suddenly by with bleeding from the nose
or with a profuse perspiration.
