Syphilis ear

Manifestations of secondary syphilis (roseola, papule) on the skin of the outer ear are noted simultaneously with a similar lesion of other areas of the skin. Of greatest importance in syphilis of the ear is the process localized in the inner ear. Distinguish between congenital and acquired forms of the disease. In the congenital form, damage to the inner ear is detected at the age of 10–20 years and it is manifested by a triad of symptoms (the Getchinson triad): a special form of teeth, infectious keratitis (inflammation of the cornea) and neuritis of the cochlear branch of the VIII pair of cranial nerves. In this case, hearing impairment plays a paramount role; it is always bilateral and has a sensorineural character.
Often, with syphilis of the ear, a positive fistular symptom is observed in the absence of a purulent process in the ear. In some cases, ear syphilis begins suddenly: dizziness, nystagmus, tinnitus and hearing loss occur.

D and a gnost with and is based on the above symptoms and other manifestations of the disease, as well as the results of serological reactions.

Treatment is a specific antisyphilitic.

Syphilis ear

  1. Syphilis ear
    Congenital syphilis is characterized by damage to the inner ear and appears at the age of 8 to 20 years. Bilateral pronounced sensorineural hearing loss develops (the Getchinson triad - deformity of incisors, parenchymal keratitis and cochlear neuritis) with a decrease, less often loss of vestibular function. Often there is a positive symptom of Anber - pressor nystagmus with a whole drum
  2. Syphilis of the upper respiratory tract and ear
    Syphilis is an infectious disease caused by pale treponema and transmitted primarily through sexual contact. The course of the disease is chronic relapsing with a characteristic periodicity of clinical symptoms. With syphilis, all organs and
    In case of an external ear injury, first aid is similar to first aid for injuries. Damage to the eardrum can occur during explosions, diving, during diving operations. The rupture of the membrane is accompanied by pain, hearing loss, minor bleeding from the ear. First aid: - insert a sterile cotton swab into the external auditory meatus; - put on the ear
    The fact of transmission of syphilis to offspring was established in the late 15th - early 16th centuries. For several centuries, the question of the mechanism of transmission of syphilitic infection remained unclear. For centuries, the germinative hypothesis was dominant, according to which syphilis is transmitted to the fetus only by the father through a sperm that directly infects the egg cell. According to this view, a child with syphilis
  5. Congenital syphilis. Fetal syphilis
    Under the influence of treponem, changes that occur in the placenta make it functionally inferior, as a result of which its intrauterine death occurs at the 6-7th month of pregnancy. The dead fruit is pushed out on the 3-4th day, usually in a macerated state. The macerated fruit, compared with a normally developing fruit of the same age, has significantly smaller sizes and weights. Leather

    Secondary period. This period begins with the onset of the first generalized rashes (on average 2.5 months after infection) and lasts in most cases for 2–4 years. The duration of the secondary period is individual and is determined by the characteristics of the patient's immune system. In the secondary period, the most pronounced wave-like course of syphilis, i.e., alternation

    Causes Acute purulent otitis media of the middle ear, suffered from acute respiratory viral infections, scarlet fever, tonsillitis, measles, diseases of the upper respiratory tract, middle ear injury. Symptoms Frequent profuse suppuration from the ear with an unpleasant odor, hearing loss, periodic exacerbations of inflammation in the middle ear. Often, cholesteatom masses are released from the ear. Possible increase in temperature. First Aid Alcohol

    1. Primary seronegative syphilis. 2. Primary seropositive syphilis. 3. Primary latent syphilis. This group includes patients who, during the entire first course of treatment, persistently negative standard serological reactions persist. 4. Secondary fresh syphilis. 5. Secondary recurrent syphilis. 6. Secondary latent syphilis. This group includes patients
  12. Ear leprosy
    The manifestation of leprosy of the outer ear is observed with lesions of the skin of the face. In the skin of the auricle (lobe and curl), nodes are formed where pain and tactile sensitivity are reduced. Sometimes there is a degeneration of the nervous apparatus of the inner ear with manifestations of sensorineural hearing loss. Patients with infectious granulomas are urgently sent to the hospital, are examined under Art. 3, 4,6
    Eye damage is noted in the secondary period of syphilis, most often in the form of iritis. Patients complain of pain, photophobia, and lacrimation. On examination, pericorneal injection, narrowing of the pupil and a sluggish reaction to light and convergence are found. On the iris, a rash of small, papule sized, pin-sized pellets is often noted. Damage resulting from

    Middle ear diseases represent the most clinically and socially important group. They often get sick adults and especially children. The result of these diseases is hearing loss, leading to a decrease in social activity, professional suitability and degree of fitness for military service. Finally, middle ear diseases can cause intracranial complications, which threaten fatal
  17. Syphilis
    Syphilis is a chronic sexually transmitted disease caused by damage to the skin, mucous membranes, internal organs, bones and nervous system. Congenital syphilis is an infectious disease, the infection of which occurred from a mother with syphilis in the period of fetal development. Congenital syphilis develops as a result of the pathogen entering the fetus through the placenta.

    DEFINITION Early congenital syphilis is an intrauterine infection that occurs in a child under the age of 2 years. EPIDEMIOLOGY The incidence rate of congenital syphilis per 100,000 children was 2.8 in 1998 compared with 0.04 in 1990. In 1998, 837 children with congenital syphilis were registered in Russia.

    Malignant tumors of the ear can be both primary, i.e. developed directly in a particular department of the ear, and arising from the germination of tumors from neighboring organs and tissues. In the outer and middle ear, cancer is more often diagnosed in adults, and sarcoma in children. Of the other species, there may be melanoma. The course of tumors of the outer ear is relatively slow, they look like
