INTRODUCTION Benzathine penicillin G is the treatment of choice for syphilis, but doxycycline and tetracycline are effective second-line treatments. The objective of this study was to assess the serological response to treatment for early syphilis with benzathine penicillin compared with doxycycline or tetracycline. METHODOLOGY We examined rapid plasma(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relevant factors of seroresistance of syphilis by clinical analysis and study of immunological function. METHODS The clinical data of 172 patients with syphilis were analyzed to observe the correlation of seroresistance with the factors including original titer of rapid plasma regain (RPR), disease course, and medication. Flow(More)
BACKGROUND The nevus of Ota, is a common benign pigmentary dermatosis, mainly involve innervation area of first and second branch of trigeminal nerve.

Studies about its classification are rarely seen in last 70 years, while it is still practical(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence of seroresistance of syphilis and analyze its relevant factors. METHODS The clinical data of 131 patients with syphilis were retrospectively analyzed. The incidence of seroresistance was investigated and the correlation between seroresistance and factors including age, gender, original titer, disease course, and(More)
Persistent non-treponemal titres after treatment are common among patients with latent syphilis. Although retreatment is often done in clinical practice, optimal management remains uncertain due to the paucity of data regarding serological response to retreatment and long-term outcomes. We compared the serological responses of serofast latent syphilis(More)
