Title

"Syphilis, Its Cause, Its Spread..Its Cure!" (Detail--Doctor, Test)

Description

"Self-treatment and the quack are useless in syphilis. See your doctor of local clinic for adequate treatment."

"Find syphilis early. Serum from the first sore may reveal syphilis even before the blood test will show it."

Detail from an educational pamphlet by the USPHS on syphilis. One photograph shows a doctor talking to a patient. The other depicts the preparation of slides to identify samples positive for syphilis.
