Abstract SINCE 1943, when Mahoney, Arnold and Harris first reported on the use of penicillin in the treatment of syphilis, many excellent papers have been presented dealing with the efficacy of various dosage schedules in the different manifestations of the disease. It is not our purpose in this discussion to add to these reports but rather to present information concerning a problem in the management of syphilis in northern Alberta and the manner in which it is being attacked.

Two spot surveys, one in 1921 and one in 1935, had disclosed no evidence of syphilis in the population of northern Alberta in excess of that in the inhabitants of the province as a whole.
