EXTRACTS FROM A JAPANESE WORK ON SYPHILIS

Arch Dermatol. 1994;130(1):138. doi:10.1001/archderm.1994.01690010144037
Abstract

I HAVE extracted the following remarks from a Japanese work published in Kioto, 1801, and entitled ''Brief Account of Syphilis'' (Bai-o-yaku-gen).

These are the remedies to be employed: calomel, mercury, medicated vapors and fumigations, vermilion-lead, the Chinese remedy called five pearls, the Japanese Kyryo.

Syphilis affects women more rarely than men; this is accounted for by the poison escaping with the catamenia.
