Kind vom Hund gebissen o. Mutter vom Hund gebissen: Lyss.
Lyssin (also known as Hydrophobinum) is homeopathic rabies. Here was a case of mine, a child with uncontrollable anger, yelling, throwing, banging things,
kicking, poking, hitting… all the usual bad behaviors….
How did I know it was Lyssin? When the child was 1 year old, he was bitten by a dog and given 8 rabies shots! How many times have I said, “Etiology over-rules symptomatology”?
A very clear etiology here!
Whenever you see violent behavior and a dog bite in the history, think of Lyssin. Something to look for in Lyssin cases: anger, raging, swearing, followed by
non-stop apologizing; fear of water, bathing, dogs, the dark; also, dog-like behavior such as barking and growling. None of this was reported in the above case
but the etiology (the cause) was apparent and sufficient.
