Lachesis. (Lachesis Mutus.)

The Surukuku Snake of South America. Ophidia.

The first trituration, and first dilution in alcohol, of the snake poison, Trigonocephalus Lachesis, was made by Hering, on July 28th, 1828.

The first cases were published in the Archives, in 1835. In 1837 this remedy was introduced into our Materia Medica. See Effects of Snake Poison, by C. Hering, Denkschriften der Nordamerikanischen Akademie der homopathischen Heilkunst, Allentown, Pa.

Provings by Hering, and under his direction by Stapf, Bute, Bauer, Behlert, Detwiller, Gross, Kummer, Reichhelm, Roenig, Wesselhoeft, Kehr, Koth, Matlack, De Young, Helfrich, Schmoele, and Lingen. Later provings were made by Robinson, Fellows (Fincke, not contained in Encyclopaedia), Bartlett, Metcalf and Berridge. See Allen's Encyclopaedia, vol. 5, p. 432.

[Note. -A circular letter issued by Dr. Hering, in 1878, soliciting contributions of clinical matter, provings, etc., for a full collection of reports wherewith to celebrate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the introduction of Lachesis, was freely and generously responded to by numerous members of the profession, whose names appear in the list of Clinical Authorities, followed by the abbreviation MSS. The author did not live to finish his intended Monograph, but all that is essential and of guiding value in Lachesis is embodied in our arrangement. –Eds.]
