What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the infectious syphilis (primary and secondary) incidence rate in cases per 100,000 population.
Why this is important: 
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. Syphilis can also be passed from mother to infant during pregnancy causing a disease called congenital syphilis.

In 2008, 13,500 cases of primary and secondary syphilis were reported in the United States, a 17.7 percent increase from 2007. The rate of primary & secondary syphilis in the United States was 18.4% higher in 2008 than in 2007. Primary and secondary syphilis rates have been increasing each year since 2000. In 2008, 63% of the reported primary and secondary syphilis cases in the U.S. were among men who have sex with men, but syphilis among heterosexuals is an emerging problem.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Texas state value.
Rates for previous years may not reflect the most recent revisions made by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Consult the source for the most current rates.
