Treponema


Presentation

  • We report a patient who presented with left arm swelling, secondary to onion peel periostitis of the humerus, which was caused by Treponema species.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He presented with a mass on his testicle and simultaneously had serology consistent with early syphilis. It could not be distinguished from a malignancy, which necessitated urgent orchidectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We also present evidence that this region is subject to positive selection in ssp. pallidum , consistent with pressure from the immune system.[www3.interscience.wiley.com]
  • Laboratory Safety The agent may be present in materials collected from cutaneous and mucosal lesions and in blood.[ehs.unc.edu]
  • Congenital syphilis is a subtype in neonates acquired from the mother in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, that presents with facial anomalies like snuffles, a saddle nose, Hutchinson teeth, mulberry molars, short maxillae, saber shins, and[osmosis.org]
