ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options available for the sexually transmitted disease syphillis. The disease, in 2007, remains common worldwide, with an estimated 10-12 million cases appearing each year. It has re-emerged as an important disease in Western Europe and the United Kingdom and has been found to be an important facilitator of HIV transmission. A discussion of the factors which have led to syphillis epidemics in the United Kingdom, United States and the former Soviet Union is presented.
