Tuberculosis treatments, before and after photographs.
Die Heliotherapie der Tuberkulose mit besonderer Ber├╝cksichtigung ihrer chirurgischen Formen / von dr. A. Rollier ... Mit 138 textabbildungen. Berlin : J. Springer, 1913. (pp.54-55) WFA R754h 1913 Osler - Robertson
Figures 26 and 27 of this translation of Rollier's work on heliotherapy for tuberculosis depict before and after images of two young patients. The first patient on the left is depicted in nearly the same position in both images. His skin is bronzed and healed in the "after" photograph. On the right hand side, a 10-year-old patient is depicted lying down with attention drawn to his atrophied limbs. Below, the "after" picture presents the picture of health: the patient nearly nude, taking the sun on the mountainside in ongoing treatment.
