"When morphine for injection was first introduced it was often injected just under the skin rather than intravenously, though this could lead to abscesses and scarring as shown here. This ‘morphinomaniac’ subject was a male nurse pictured shortly before his death." (Illustration by H H Kane, 1881 - courtesy Wellcome Images)
