Rare Diseased Heart Medical Picture

Item ID: 1928 | Category: Anatomical


This is an extremely rare German Museum Display Bas Relief Medical Tablet. This one depicts the third stage of syphilis in the human heart. If left untreated 30% of syphilis infected patients may experience disease all over the body. The bacteria can give harmful effect to the brain, spinal cord and the heart as shown in this piece. You can see the inflammation caused to the main artery. Fascinating study item. Bas-relief is a type of sculpture that has less depth to the faces and figures than they actually have. This very scarce display piece was part of a collection removed from the Hygiene Museum in Dresden. It measures 32 x 26cms and is a must have for a serious collector.
