In 1932, the U.S. Public Health Service began a 40-year observational study of untreated latent syphilis among the black men of Macon County, Alabama. These men and their families were deceived about the intent of the study, and were denied treatment even after penicillin was available. The social and racial injustices of Tuskegee should alert us to the continuing inequities among vulnerable populations in health care settings today.
