Abstract

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection that is increasing in the U.K. If left untreated it can have a number of potentially devastating health-related sequelae. However, effective treatment is available. Nurses working in various healthcare settings should be aware of the signs and symptoms of the infection to make a prompt diagnosis and appropriate referral for treatment.
