Syphilis infection has recently resurfaced as a significant public health problem. Although there has been a tremendous amount of research on the epidemiology of syphilis, there has been limited work done to synthesize the extensive body of research and systematically estimate patterns of disease within high-risk groups in the Americas.

Background. Syphilis is a complex sexually transmitted disease that has a highly variable clinical course. Classification by a clinician with expertise in syphilis may take precedence over the following case definitions developed for surveillance purposes.

The diagnosis of secondary syphilis can be determined by the presence of the typical skin rash and positive serologic tests for syphilis. In 1%–2% of cases of secondary syphilis, the VDRL test may be falsely negative because of an excess of antibodies (prozone effect), which interfere with test Cited by:   Syphilis remains common worldwide, and since the late s infectious early syphilis has re-emerged as an important disease in western Europe, including the United Kingdom.1 The clinical presentation of both early and late syphilis is diverse, and patients may present to a wide range of services and clinicians, including general practitioners.

Syphilis is usually transmitted by direct and intimate contact with moist infectious lesions of the skin and mucous membranes. Sexual contact is by far the commonest means of infection, but transfer of the disease by kissing or biting occasionally occur.

Indirect transmission –i.e., by contaminated objects- is exceptional, since the organisms quickly die if allowed to dry. Introduction. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a spirochete named Treponema pallidum, which can damage the heart, aorta, brain, eyes, and bones when inadequately treated.[1–3] A few cases of pulmonary syphilis have been reported with varying imaging findings.[4–6] We would like to describe a case of pulmonary syphilis mimicking pulmonary hematogenous metastases on.

Origin. The history of syphilis has been well studied, but the exact origin of the disease remains unknown. There are two primary hypotheses: one proposes that syphilis was carried to Europe from the Americas by the crew(s) of Christopher Columbus as a byproduct of the Columbian exchange, while the other proposes that syphilis previously existed in Europe but went unrecognized.

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection disease which caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that million new cases of syphilis occurred among adolescents and adults worldwide in [].Though the incidence of primary and secondary syphilis is still increasing these years, the incidence of tertiary syphilis had remarkable Cited by: 3.

Congenital syphilis is a preventable disease and its presence reflects a failure of prenatal care delivery systems, as well as syphilis control programmes.

The procedure to prevent congenital syphilis through antenatal screening and treatment is well established. But implementation of effective programmes has proved very difficult especially in resource constrained countries.Syphilis is a chronic infectious disease with three stages caused by Treponema pallidum.

Epidemiology of Syphilis. Declining frequency, the incidence of syphilis dropped in the last decades from 20/ to 3/ for primary and secondary syphilis.
