One female rabbit that died showed consolidated lungs, multifocal hemorrhages and ulcers on mucosa of glandular stomach, mottled liver and blood mixed exudate in intestine in addition to lesions associated with Treponematosis. The histopathological evaluation of glandular stomach revealed infiltration of inflammatory cells surrounding eroded mucosa and hemorrhagic enteritis.
David (2012) observed that dark field examination is a simpler method to diagnose Treponematosis by detection of spiral morphology and corkscrew motility of spirochete organisms.
This healed cavitation lesion in the cortical bone resembled a healed gumma, a diagnostic feature of treponematosis (Hackett 1978; Ortner 2003).

Given documentation of yaws on Guam by Stewart and Spoehr (1952) and regional population characterization, the only meaningful question is if there is evidence for pre-Columbian existence of any treponematosis other than yaws in the South Pacific.
