Caption: This image depicted a patient, who had manifested a swelling in one of his left inguinal lymph nodes, known as an inguinal bubo, brought on by the plague bacterium, Yersinia pestis. Note how the swollen node had eroded through the skin, producing a purulent discharge due to the plague infection. This slide was from the collection gathered by the immunologist, Dr. Karl Friedrich Meyer.
