This monograph is a thesis presented by the author for a position of ``Livre Docente'' in the Clinic of Dermatology and Syphilology of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Minas Gerais. Although the main emphasis is on the late manifestations of yaws, all the phases of the disease are discussed and the author reviews the present knowledge of this condition on the basis largely of his personal experience. In this monograph the author stresses the fact that yaws is a major public health problem in Brazil, where the incidence of the disease may reach up to 5% and even 15% of the population in certain endemic regions.
The book is divided into seven chapters: pathogenesis and evolution of yaws; early and late lesions; relationship of yaws, syphilis, and other treponematoses; personal data on late manifestations of yaws; lesions of the locomotor apparatus; histopathology of the late manifestations
