What is Syphilis?

It is a systemic infection a chronic evolution, with asymptomatic periods, caused by Treponema pallidum. Treponema is a spirochete just as in leptospirosis and borreliosis or Lyme disease. This disease gives similar symptoms and can be cured with the same drugs.

Treponema pallidum bacterium is a long, thin, helical shape, with a characteristic that is rotates on its axis, and can be seen in the dark field microscopy. In Hospital Mexico, we do Dark field when the patient is still in our office.


Primary Stage:

The appearance of a single sore marks the first stage (primary) stage of the disease, although more then one can be found in the first stage. The sore appears at the spot where syphilis had the first contact with the body. Usually, the ulcer is firm, round and painless. The sore lasts 3 to 6 weeks and heals even though the patient does not receive treatment. Disease does not progress if treatment is given at this time. However, if the infected person does not receive proper treatment the infection progresses to the secondary stage.

Secondary Stage:

The rash or ulcers in the mouth, vagina or anus (also called mucous membrane lesions) characterize the secondary stage of symptoms. This phase usually begins with the appearance of a rash on one or more areas of the body. Skin rashes associated with secondary syphilis can appear as soon as it begins to heal the primary sore, several weeks after it has healed. Usually, the rash does not itch. This rash may appear as hard points, red or reddish brown spots both on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. However, it may be different in other parts of the body and may resemble other rashes caused by other diseases.

Large lesions, elevated, gray or white can occur in warm, moist areas like the mouth, armpit or groin region. Sometimes rashes associated with secondary syphilis are so mild that they go unnoticed. Other symptoms of secondary syphilis include fever, swollen lymph glands, sore throat, patchy hair loss, headaches, weight loss, muscle aches and fatigue. Symptoms of this stage of syphilis disappear with or without treatment. Without proper treatment, the infection will progress to a latent phase and possibly more advanced stages of the disease.

Latent and advanced stages:

The latent (hidden) stage of syphilis begins with the disappearance of symptoms of primary and secondary phases. Without treatment, the infected person may continue to have syphilis in your body, even if you have no signs or symptoms. This latent stage can last for years.

Approximately 15% of people who have not been treated for syphilis show the advanced stage of the disease, which may appear between 10 and 30 years after the infection started. The symptoms of the late stage of syphilis include difficulty coordinating muscle movements, paralysis, numbness, gradual blindness and dementia. In the late stages of syphilis can damage internal organs such as the brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones and joints. This disease can be fatal.

What is the relationship between syphilis and HIV?

Oral ulcers, anal, vaginal or penis can facilitate the transmission and infection of HIV. A person is between 2 and 5 times more likely to contract HIV if exposure occurs when the syphilis sores are present.

How is syphilis treated?

No home remedy or OTC cure syphilis, however, this condition is easily cured with appropriate antibiotics prescribed by a doctor. Treatment will kill the bacteria that cause syphilis and prevent future damage, but the damage has already been done can be reversed through treatment with antibiotics.

People receiving treatment for syphilis should abstain from sexual contact with new partners until the syphilis sores are completely healed. Persons with syphilis must notify them immediately to their sexual partners to get tested and treated if necessary.

Who should be tested for syphilis?

Providers must give routinely test the following people:

- Pregnant

- Men who have sex with men

- People living with HIV

- People whose sexual partners had a positive test result for syphilis

- Anyone with symptoms or who has had many partners and unprotected

Late Syphilis

Late syphilis have the same symptoms of Leptospirosis and Lyme disease and can be cured with a long term treatment with antibiotics as with other spirochetes, but depends on the time and the injuries that the patient have What matters is the long-term treatment and not only the traditional two injections of 1,200,000 units of benzathine penicillin, benzathine can be used for prolonged periods, depending on the patients response.

Quaternary phase or period

It is characterized by the appearance-many years after contracting the condition-of general paresis or tabes dorsalis.

Tabes dorsalis or progressive locomotor ataxia.

Degeneration of the dorsal spinal cord and sensory trunks, with atrophy.

It is characterized by paroxysms of severe pain or crisis, incoordination, sensory disturbance, loss of reflexes, paroxysms of functional impairment of various organs, including the stomach, larynx, etc., And also by different trophic disorders, especially bones and joints, incontinence or urinary retention, decreased sex drive, etc.

The course is slow and progressive, temporarily pauses or changes but complete cure is rare.

It is more commonly seen in older males, more common in males. Syphilis is the sole or main cause.

Medical Director

Hi, I am Dr. Manuel Lazo, Hospital Mexico’ s medical director. We have been treating patients for over 20 years, and seen that the traditional treatments do not cure, but instead only calms the symptoms for a while, as the disease keeps progressing and the medications are not only expensive but they can have horrible side effects.

Our Hospital is one of the few places in the world where patients with migraine, arthritis, lower back pain and facial paralysis could be cured.

About our treatment

When you come here for consult, we do dark field microscopy in which we look for spirochaetes in your blood.

We take away your symptoms and cure your disease with antibiotics, depending on the patient and severity of the problem. We do not use natural or “alternative” medicine, only antibiotics which can be purchased at a pharmacy.
