DIPSOMANIA (from Gr. Silk, thirst, and ,uavia, madness), a term formerly applied to the attacks of delirium caused by alcoholic poisoning. It is now sometimes loosely used as equivalent to the condition of incurable inebriates, but strictly should be confined to the pathological and insatiable desire for alcohol, sometimes occurring in paroxysms.
