This illustration depicted a posterior view of a patient’s lower body, from the buttocks to the feet, highlighting the locations of carbuncle-plaque lesions, which in this patient’s case, were cured by blood transfusions. The case dated back to 1937, and took place in the region of Lake Tahoe. The patient handled dead chipmunks. This slide was from the collection gathered by the immunologist, Dr. Karl Friedrich Meyer.
