Illustration by Surgeon Leonard Portal Mark (1855-1930), pathological artist at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. Watercolor drawing of the tongue of a 10-yaer-old boy, showing two large deeply excavated ulcers with raised and rugged edges, due to congenital syphilis. The child had previously been in the hospital with a similar condition of the tongue, which quite disappeared under treatment by iodide of potassium. Under this medicine, the symptoms quickly disappeared for the second time. (Source: St Bartholomew's Hospital Archives & Museum, London. Wellcome Trust, London.
