Syphilis, the Great Imposter, is an infectious venereal disease caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum. The disease will continue to progress though its four overlapping stages: Primary, secondary, latent, and tertiary syphilis. The majority of cases are among the MSM population, half of which are co-infected with HIV, but in addition to this there has been an increase in cases among pre-menopausal women coinciding with a rise in congenital cases. An increased awareness of the prevalence of syphilis in all populations, but especially the MSM population, requires broadening differentials and considerations when faced with a patient who is at risk to obtain the best treatment options.
