Each prostitute was given a booklet in which the examination results were recorded. The prostitute (or the madam) had to purchase Sanitarios to pay for the examinations. The stamp was placed in the booklet and various markings were added at the time of examination. There were four possible results: SANA (healthy), CON REGLA (menstruating), ENFERMA (sick), and OBSERVACION (under observation). This catalog covers the entire time period during which these stamps were issued (1893 to 1928), including all known varieties, examination result markings, and overprints. Also included in the catalog are a few stamps of similar design which were issued to pay for veterinary inspections and vaccination against tuberculosis.
