Abstracts
From the end of the 15th century, syphilis spread worldwide, posing a serious threat to public
health. Venereal syphilis has been a major research topic, not only in clinical medicine but
also in paleopathology, especially because it is a disease of questionable origin and of high
prevalence until the discovery of antibiotics. Syphilis in history has been studied extensively
in Europe and the Americas, though less so in Asia. In this review, based on extant historical
documents and available paleopathological data, we pinpoint the introduction and trace
the spread of venereal syphilis in Korea to the end of the 19th century. This review provides
fundamental information that will be of great help to future research on pre-20th century
syphilis in Korea.
