Abstract:

Thanks to the introduction of modern specific techniques, knowledge of syphilis has made great progress during the last ten years. Progress in the bacteriological and immunological understanding of the development of treponemosis has made it the pilot microbial infection in the study of all infectious processes. Progress in the discrimination of clinical manifestations has made it possible to differentiate those which are directly due to treponemosis and those caused by secondary tissue processes where the treponema is merely an irritative factor. Progress in therapy has made it possible to act more rapidly and effectively, and on the other hand, to limit treatment that is often useless during the latent phases of the disease.
