Excerpt from Lupines as Poisonous Plants

As a medicine, lupine seeds have been used since ancient times. Pliny (ed. 1856, p. 452 - 453) enumerates 35 different uses. The main uses, however, seem to have been as a cathartic and as a Vernii fuge. Eor the latter it was used as an external application as well as internally.

Bellini (1876) reports in detail cases of poisoning in man from using a decoction of lupine as an enema. He states that Averrhoes' and Hofman pointed out the poisonous properties of the plants, and that Paullus, 1708, reports a case of poisoning of a boy by an enema. The reference to Averrhoes and Hofman could not be verified, as apparently they only mentioned the plants as a vermifuge. The symptoms mentioned by Bellini are dyspnoea, defective sight, dilated pupils, and stupor. These symptoms, as will be Seen later, compare fairly well with those of poisoning by the lupine alkaloids.
