In 2017, a total of 30,644 cases of primary and secondary syphilis were reported in the United States, yielding a rate of 9.5 cases per 100,000 population (CDC, 2018). According to the CDC (2018), this rate signifies a 10.5% increase compared with 2016 (8.6 cases per 100,000 population). Syphilis has a high prevalence among certain racial/ethnic groups, as well as in other groups, such as adolescents, sex workers, men who have sex with men (MSM), and sexually abused women (Hollier, 2018). Syphilis is transmitted through direct contact with an ulcerative lesion, or chancre which appears during the primary stage (most infectious) of syphilis (Hollier, 2018). Patients with this infection may seek medical treatment for signs and/or symptoms of primary syphilis (chancre/ulcer), or secondary syphilis (diffuse rash on palms and soles) (Hollier, 2018). On the other hand, patients may be completely asymptomatic and only diagnosed on routine screening.

Yonglin suggested to me one prevention strategy from the CDC called the “Talk, Test, Treat” method that has been suggested by the CDC is the “Talk, Test, Treat” method. Talking involves discussing sexual health history, testing involves screening for syphilis. The CDC recommends screening all sexually active men who have sex with men at least once a year, and more frequently if they are at-risk for infection. Pregnant women should be tested at their first prenatal visit, and at-risk women should be rescreened in their third trimester and again at delivery to prevent congenital syphilis. Lastly, patients need to be treated with benzathine penicillin G who test positive for syphilis.
