Syphilis Update 2022: What's going on here??

Syphilis is an endemic public health problem that affects infants, children and adults. Syphilis diagnoses continue to increase nationwide and in Louisiana, which has historically had high rates of syphilis infection. To combat the resurgence of syphilis and improve the health of our patients and community, healthcare providers need to understand the symptoms, impact, diagnosis and treatment of syphilis.


At the conclusion of this presentation, the learner will be able to:


  1. recognize the signs and symptoms of syphilis in infants and adults
  2. determine the appropriate testing strategy for diagnosis of syphilis
  3. initiate prompt treatment of syphilis based on the stage of disease
  4. report syphilis diagnoses to appropriate public health agencies for contact tracing.
