"Chances of an Infected Case"

Dublin Core

Title

"Chances of an Infected Case"

Description

This pictorial statistic conveys that most patients get less that 10 injections of treatment and that only a few injections commonly leads to relapses of syphilis. It uses images of syringes and men sitting and standing to represent the statistics. It is a graphic print for an image that appeared in Parran's 1937 book, Shadow on the Land.
