Broussais was a pupil of Bichart, surgeon of the armies of France, physician-in-chief at Val-de-Grâce, and from 1831, Professor General Pathology at Paris. "Broussais believed that the basis of all pathology was gastroenteritis and that debilitating treatment was called for in nearly every disease. His most common remedy was the application of leeches to the stomach or the head. The popularity of his methods is evidenced by the fact that during one year, over 35,000,000 leeches were imported into France." (Heirs of Hippocrates) Following the discreditation of his theories he turned his attention to the field of mental illness. The present treatise on irritation and insanity was written after he became president of the Society for Phrenology. Wellcome II p. 248. Caillet 1700. Heirs of Hippocrates 765. Waller 1495.
