Germs of Gonorrhea

Dublin Core

Title

Germs of Gonorrhea

Description

This poster features an image of gonococci under a microscope. The text explains the effects of gonorrhea and emphasizes a cure is possible but difficult. The poster is part of the "Keeping Fit" poster series.

"Gonorrhea may cause stricture, bladder disease, rheumatism, heart disease, sterility and other diseases. If the germs of gonorrhea get into the body, they may remain in the deeper parts and, long after an apparent cure, cause a return of the disease. Gonorrhea can be cured if promptly and thoroughly treated, but its cure is often exceedingly difficult."
