Syphilis has been called the “great imposter” because its symptoms can mimic other infections in advanced stages.¹ When left untreated, syphilis can lead to serious neurological and cardiovascular complications, and cause stillbirth in pregnant women. Fortunately, detection of the presence of syphilis antibodies in patients may be used to support decisions for an antibiotic therapy, detect persons at risk to spread the infection and identify those that are not aware of their infection to prevent late complications. Recently, a meta-analysis of 10 studies involving 41,049 women found that screening and treatment of the infection in pregnant women could reduce by more than half the number of stillbirths and perinatal deaths resulting from maternal transmission of syphilis.²
