Exploring Saint-Louis Hospital

Ally Grubman

This was a picture I took on the way to the dermatology museum on the Saint-Louis Hospital campus in Paris. While we didn’t get to actually visit the museum on this trip, the hallway outside of it had many pictures and portraits of patients with dermatological illnesses. These illnesses were interesting to look at and related to the paper we were talking about in class at the time. Mainly, some of the portraits of the patients had chancres, the main symptom of early syphilis, which is what our last paper was about. This helped me visualize the illness we had just been talking about and put it all into perspective. Can’t wait to go back and actually see the museum next time!
