Abstract [en]

Early sexually transmissible syphilis is still an infection of major importance worldwide despite the fact that it is nowadays curable, with penicillin treatment. Syphilis has during the last decades been considered in many Western countries to appear mainly among men who have sex with men (MSM). In Sweden only 106 cases were reported (76 MSM) in 2008.In the present paper an epidemic of early syphilis among young heterosexual men and women aged 18 to 23 years is described. The suspected primary index case was a 20 year old woman who had been living for some months in a Mediterranean city. During a period of one year 10 persons living in Norrköping, a town of 128 000 inhabitants, had a confirmed infection. In all, almost 55 men and women were notified and examined. This epidemic shows the dynamic of transmission, the unawareness of care givers and common people as well, but also how efficient contact tracing can be.
