Treponematoses yaws and treponarid in exhumed australian aboriginal bones

Records of the South Australian Museum (Adelaide) 17(27): 387-405

Treponematoses yaws and treponarid in exhumed australian aboriginal bones

Active early treponemal bone lesions heal within a few months to leave little if any change. The active late ones may last for a year or more, and when healed leave changes that last forever; they are more likely to be found in bone populations in which a treponemal infection is present. Diagnostic criteria are described and illustrated from exhumed Australian Aboriginal bones. The total of such specimens in Australian museums is not great, perhaps a few scattered among thousands of normal specimens.
