Germs of Syphilis

Description

This poster shows an image of a scientist in a lab and a microscopic view of syphilis microbes. It also explains the long-term effects of the illness and the effectiveness of early treatment.

"Syphilis may affect any part of the body, including the brain and heart. It often causes paralysis, softening of the brain and death. Syphilis may be cured if treatment is begun early enough and continued long enough."
