Dear colleaguesAlienistspsychopathologistslovers of the clinic, and psychiatric symptomatology. Cotardhis delusional psychotic melancholy, his anxious melancholy, hypochondria . Serve as a tribute to Cotard patientswhich still excite us with his melancholy suffering.
This will never find in the DSM – 5. Studies on Cerebral and Mental Diseases. In he described persecutory delusions and their evolution. This term continues to be employed to this day in the international psychiatric vocabulary.
Reality has become to them foreign or hostile. But this negative disposition is particularly marked in certain melancholics, as has been remarked by Grieseinger. Ask them their name? In some, the negation is universaleverything has ceased to exist, they themselves have ceased to exist.
These same patients who deny everythingferud oppose everythingresist everything that they are called upon to do. It requires the greatest efforts to persuade them to change their linen, they refuse to go, to bed, refuse again to rise, are opposed to everything they are asked.
However, he does not refer to nihilistic delusion, of which the madness of opposition is, so to frwud, simply the moral aspect. The same is true of most: Even the cases where the fact is simply described, are rare. Only the hypochondriac form of the nihilistic delusion has ffeud commonly observed since the work of M. Below is a summary of the questioning process. It was Catherine X Physical and metaphysical experiments were performed on her and continue to be performed.
This work was not known to her before There is an invisible being descending, she has come to unite her voice with mine. Leuret’s patient presented, in addition melamcolia the most marked nihilistic delusion, numerous frejd Complex cases where, as here, the two duell coexist, melancollia not rare; I will provide examples of them later. Usually, however, these two forms of delusion are observed in isolation in different patients.
It is on this terrain, however, mellancolia a variable period and following a particular delusional process, that systematised nihilism seems to develop. However, it is not unusual, in states of advanced chronicity, for the nihilistic delusion to continue, so to speak, beyond the general early disorders, and for patients, like that of Leuret, no longer to present either apparent depression or anxious agitation. I have just identified the dual origin of nihilistic delusion as melancholia with depression or stuporand agitated or anxious melancholia.
Falret has often remarked-be confused with true persecutory delusion, which is relatively rare in patients of this type. From this point of view, two main classes of melancholics can be distinguished: I stress this division of the melancholic delusionswhich have been confused by most authors.
Falret, who has described it with meticulous precision. Delusions of ruin appear often, and seem to be negative delusions of the same nature: It is the opposite of the delusion of grandeur where the patient claims immense riches together with every talent and every ability.
This moral hypochondria is based in the common ground of melancholia and in a state of vague and indeterminate anxiety. The patient is then, as M. It is important to make a clear distinction between this state of moral hypochondria and ordinary hypochondria. Although cases of melancholia without delusion must, according to Melahcolia. Ordinary hypochondriaof which M. In general, it may be said that moral hypochondria is to the delusion of melancollia, of guilt, of perdition and of negation, that which ordinary hypochondria is to the persecutory delusion.
When nihilistic delusion is establishedit applies either to the actual personality of the patientor to the outside world. Some mekancolia that they will never die. This idea of immortality is found above all in cases where anxious agitation is predominant; in stupor, the patients are more likely to imagine that they have died.

Hypochondriac delusionlargely moral at the onset fteud, at a more advanced stage and especially when the disease attains the chronic state, both moral and physical. Patients who initially have lost both heart and intelligence, end by having no body. Some, like Leuret’s female patient, speak of themselves only in the third person. The persecuted hypochondriacs are entirely different: They in general have a very good opinion of themselves and of the strength of their constitution in sustaining so many ills; they blame external influencesthe air, the humidity, the cold, the heat, food and especially medicines.
If they have syphilis, it is not the syphilis, but the mercury which is the cause of all their suffering. The persecuted individual feels himself exposed to these injurious influences, which converge on his person from outside. In what measure do these alterations of the sensibility contribute dudlo the development of hypochondriac nihilistic delusion? When the delusion relates to the outside world, patients imagine that they have no family, no country, that Paris has been destroyed, melancooia the world no longer exists, etc.
A rapid description of the nihilistic delusion and of its diverse forms would not be sufficient to prove that this delusion is a particular species of melancholia. I wish to show that, in conjunction with this delusion, there exist numerous symptoms, closely associated in such a way as to constitute a veritable disease, distinct feeud its characteristics and its evolution. We can employ the persecutory jelancolia as our type.
These hallucinations are especially melsncolia in states of stupor, but they are also observed in the anxious form: Some have hallucinations of taste and smell and imagine that they have become rotten, that freuv food has been transformed, that they are consuming garbagefaecal matter, human flesh, etc. In general, hallucinations in patients with ideas of frfud belong to that category of hallucinations, established by M.
Baillargerwhich reproduce the existing preoccupations of the patients. A melancholic, this author states, who blamed herself for imaginary crimes, was obsessed night and day by a voice which announced her sentence of death and described the punishments reserved for her. She was placed in an asylum and a few days after, the lypemania being at its height, she saw almost constantly before her eyes the rope which would strangle her and the coffin prepared to receive her corpse.
Patients believe themselves damned and see the fires of hell, they hear gun shots and believe frekd they are going to be shot. The hallucinatory state of anxious, stuporous or agitated melancholics is totally distinct from that of the persecuted, first because of the visual hallucinations which are rare in the persecuted, and second by the character of the auditory hallucinations.

As soon as one attempts to change their position, to bring some motion to their limbs, they powerfully contract their muscles in order to resist and to maintain their habitual position. I do not wish to linger on the trembling reported in some anxious subjects, on the cataleptiform accidents in stupor cases, but 1 cannot omit the suicidal impulses and mutilation so common in anxious patients, especially when they are dominated by religious ideas, which establish yet one more difference from the persecuted in whom suicide is much less frequent, and mutilation very rare.
The rejection of food, so closely linked with madness of opposition, also possesses certain special characteristics in frekd. Some, however, dominated by a less intense delusion of guilt or of ruin, select their food: The persecuted patient, on the other hand, carefully examines his foodseeks out what appears good, rejects what appears suspect ; when by chance he encounters food which he supposes free of any poison, he eats voraciously.
T he course of the disease. The persecutory delusion is essentially melancokia or, if one prefers, continuous, with paroxysms; the disease generally begins early, develops in a slow and progressive fredu and lasts throughout life. The condition has a quite different appearance in the negators: The mildest forms, it goes without saying, are also the most curable.
But the condition is subject to relapses at. This duuelo character is sometimes revealed, even in incurable cases, by awakenings: In the forms where stupor is predominant from the beginning, a cure is often observed despite the intensity of the delusion and its absurdity.
Patients arrive at a state of systematised nihilistic delusion which is rarely curable; in most cases they too exhibit madness of opposition, the unfavourable prognosis of which has been reported by Guislain. By its course, by its onset, by its sudden termination, when it is cured, nihilistic delusion belongs to the group of fitful or intermittent insanities and to cyclical derangement. I wish only to state a point which seems to me to establish a difference between the negators and other intermittent conditions which are close to cyclical states.
Their diseased state, their delusion of humility are not in complete contrast with their former manner of being and are simply a morbid exaggeration of it. This characteristic in the negators also makes it possible to separate them distinctly from most hereditary patients, amongst whom they form a special category; this is because they are distinguished by an exaggerated development, if one may call it so, of those same moral qualities, the absence of which in other hereditary patients explains their disordered lifetheir profound egoismtheir pridetheir undisciplined charactertheir offences fuelo their crimes.
Others have the delusion that they have become dwarfedor that some part or organ of melancoloa body has become far smaller than normal. This condition, which I term delusions of belittlement ; which is often called micromaniabut for which a better name, than the latter, was the one originally proposed by Dr. Materne ” delire des petitesses,” rarely exists alone; is usually of not very long duration, and easily escapes observation unless patients are closely examined.
I have divided these observations into three categories: Patients believe themselves to kelancolia possessed rather than damned and imagine that mealncolia have beasts or devil is in their body. This latter form seems to me to establish a sort of transition between delusion of guilt and persecutory delusion. During the paroxysms of agitation, she would utter cries and would lament in a loud voice, constantly repeating the same words.
All her organs were displaced, she could do nothing, she was lost, she was damned. The nihilistic delusion became increasingly accentuated.
The madness of opposition reached its height, Mme E The years passed without bringing any change in this delusion. She died in 1. She refused nourishment on the pretext that she could not pay for it ; she believed herself to be suffering from a contagious disease and imagined that she exuded a revolting odour; she would allow no one to approach and believed that contact with her was fatal: Out of humility, Mme E She died inthe delusion having undergone not the slightest alteration.
The melancholic delusion recurred and she was brought to Vanves at the end of the year Today May her state remains absolutely unchanged.
She then suffered a fit of anxiety with melancolis Mme M After two months, she was suddenly cured but after a few weeks she experienced the same condition and was brought to Vanves in a state of intense anxious agitation with moaning and continual terrors, in particular relating to fire.
