ABSTRACT

Yaws is a widespread, disfiguring treponemal disease causing deep-seated infirmity if untreated. It can be cured by a single injection of long-acting penicillin. 280 million people were examined and 35 million treated between 1950 and 1960. This little boy, Ede Nwaegbo, is five years old. A victim of yaws, he rarely smiled. Neither did his mother. That was before a visit of a WHO-assisted yaws team.
