Clinical manifestations of the primary period of syphilis

Primary syphiloma is the first clinical manifestation of the disease that occurs at the site of the introduction of pale treponemas through the skin and mucous membranes (in the area of ​​the entrance gate). The appearance of an erosive or ulcerative defect is preceded by the appearance of a small hyperimic inflammatory spot, which after 2-3 days turns into a papule. Shortly after the appearance of the papule, the epidermis (epithelium) covering it undergoes decay, and erosion or ulcer is formed - actually the primary syphiloma.

Localization of primary syphilis in the area of ​​the entrance gate of infection. According to localization, primary syphilomas are divided into genital, perigenital, extragenital and bipolar.

Atypical primary syphilomas:

1. Inductive edema is persistent specific lymphangitis of the small lymphatic vessels of the skin, accompanied by the phenomena of lymphostasis.

2. Chancroid panaritium is localized on the distal phalanx of the finger and bears great resemblance to banal panaritium. It is characterized by the formation of an ulcer on the back surface of the terminal phalanx of the finger.

3. Chancre-amygdalitis is a specific one-sided enlargement and significant compaction of the tonsil without a defect on its surface. The tonsil has a stagnant red color, but is not accompanied by diffuse hyperemia.

The following complications of primary syphiloma are distinguished:

1) impetiginization. A hyperemic corolla appears on the periphery of syphiloma, the tissues acquire pronounced swelling, the brightness of the element increases, the discharge becomes abundant;

2) balanitis and balanoposthitis - in men, vulvitis and vulvovaginitis - in women;

3) phimosis.
Inflammatory phimosis is characterized by bright diffuse hyperemia, mild edema and an increase in the volume of the foreskin;

4) paraphimosis, which is an infringement of the glans penis by a narrowed foreskin ring, drawn to the coronal groove;

5) gangrenization. Oifiloma undergoes necrotic decay;

6) phagedenism, starting with the appearance of a necrosis site of a greater or lesser magnitude against the background of an ulcer. But the necrotic process spreads the limits of syphiloma.

Regional lymphadenitis. It is an enlargement of the lymph nodes draining the location of primary syphiloma.

Specific lymphangitis. It is an inflammation of the lymphatic vessel from a solid chancre to regional lymph nodes.

Specific polyadenitis. At the end of the primary period of syphilis in patients, specific polyadenitis occurs.

Prodromal syndrome. About 7–10 days before the end of the primary period and during the first 5–7 days of the secondary period, symptoms of a general nature are observed due to intoxication as a result of the massive presence of treponemas in the bloodstream. It includes fatigue, weakness, insomnia, decreased appetite and working capacity, headache, dizziness, improper type of fever, myalgia, leukocytosis, and anemia.

Clinical manifestations of the primary period of syphilis

  1. Tertiary period of syphilis. Clinical manifestations
    Lumpy syphilis. Typical places of its localization are the extensor surface of the upper limbs, trunk, face. The lesion focus occupies a small area of ​​the skin, is located asymmetrically. The main morphological element of tubercular syphilide is a tubercle (dense, hemispherical, cavityless formation of a rounded shape, dense-elastic consistency). Grouped
    Currently, there is a large group of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Classification of STIs (WHO, 1982) Bacterial nature 1. Syphilis and other treponematoses (pint, frambesia, bezhel) 2. Gonorrhea 3. Chancroid 4. Venereal lymphogranulomatosis 5. Donovanosis 6. Urogenital chlamydia and Reiter’s disease 7. Urogenital mycoplasmosis (in t .h.
  3. The primary period of syphilis
    The primary period of syphilis begins with the onset of hard chancre or primary syphiloma. It lasts 6-8 weeks. Initially, at the site of introduction of pale treponema into the body, a small reddish spot or papule appears. Within a few days, this element increases to the size of a pea, at the same time a dense sclerotic infiltrate (primary
  4. The course of the incubation and primary periods of syphilis
    The incubation period. This period begins from the moment of infection and lasts until the appearance of primary syphiloma - an average of 30–32 days. It is possible to shorten and lengthen the incubation period compared to the indicated average duration. The early stages of syphilis are characterized by partial inhibition of cellular immunity, which contributes to the reproduction and spread of pathogens in

  7. Primary and secondary meningitis and encephalitis. Clinical manifestations. Course of the disease. Residual effects. Medical and pedagogical correction
    Meningitis - inflammation of the membranes of GM and SM. With a predominant lesion of the pia mater, they speak of leptomeningitis, and the dura mater - of pachymeningitis. Various pathogenic microorganisms can be causative agents of M.: viruses, bacteria, fungi, rickettsia, protozoa. At intoxications, irritation of the meninges with the development of individual wedges, signs of M., but without
  8. Primary syphilis
    The mucous membrane of the oral cavity is involved in the pathological process in all forms of syphilis. Syphilitic manifestations on the mucous membrane of the oral cavity, especially in the early periods of syphilis, are the most dangerous from the epidemiological point of view. This is facilitated by frequent erosion and ulceration of syphilitic rashes, in the discharge of which a large number of pale

    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
  10. Primary syphilis and its treatment
    It starts with the formation of a hard chancre (ulcus durum, primary syphiloma) at the site of the pathogen introduction, which is described on any part of the body, but is most often formed on the genitals, then the anal region, the oral region, the papilla in women, etc., decrease. d. A clinically typical solid chancre is solitary erosion (ulcer) with the absence of island-inflammatory phenomena, having
  11. Features of the clinical manifestations of syphilitic infection
    At present, dermatovenereology is experiencing certain difficulties in the diagnosis of syphilis, since syphilitic manifestations do not always correspond to the clinic previously described in the specialized literature. Taking antibiotics, self-medication, drinking alcohol, unbalanced nutrition, the negative effects of environmental and other factors affect the immunological status, which
  12. Clinical manifestations
    In the initial stage of diabetes, the course of atherosclerosis is latent. In this regard, the allocation of the preclinical period of atherosclerosis is justified. During this period, changes at the biochemical level are possible. In the blood plasma, three main classes of lipids are determined: cholesterol and its esters, trnglcerides, phospholipids. Of great clinical importance is the determination of blood cholesterol in HDL, LDL, VLDL. HDL for
    The clinical picture of HIV infection can be very diverse, ranging from acute seroconversion and ending with fully expressed true AIDS many years later. The infection may be asymptomatic or clinically apparent. The initial period after the first contact with the virus is usually asymptomatic and can last up to six weeks. When symptoms finally appear, they
  14. Serodiagnosis of the secondary period of syphilis
    With Lues II recens, a sharply positive result for all standard serological reactions is observed in almost 100% of cases; The titer of reagins is the highest (1: 160; 1: 240; 1: 320), RIF 4+; RIBT gives a positive result in more than half of patients, but the percentage of treponemal immobilization is low (40-60%). With Lues II recidiva, a positive result for standard serological reactions
    For a successful diagnosis of syphilis, a doctor in his clinical practice should be guided by two basic rules. The first is about which an outstanding connoisseur of syphilis A. Fournier wrote back in 1897: "Although it is not difficult to recognize the hard chancre, it is difficult to remember it during time." This provision applies equally not only to primary syphilis, but also to all its other clinical
    The triads and pentads described by classics of MS research are currently not sufficient for the clinical characteristics of MS patients. In the clinical picture of this disease, 2 groups of symptoms can be identified: classic and rare. The first group includes the most common symptoms, which are a direct manifestation of damage to the conducting systems of the brain. This also includes
    Secondary Lues begins 9-12 weeks after the introduction of pale treponema or 6-8 weeks after the onset of primary syphiloma due to generalization of the infection, when blood CSB becomes sharply positive in almost 98-100% of patients. It lasts from 2 to 5 years, divided into: secondary fresh (Lues II recens); secondary hidden (Lues II latens); secondary
  18. Clinical manifestations of hyponatremia
    With hyponatremia, neurological disorders predominate, due to overhydration of brain cells. The severity of the condition depends on the rate of development of extracellular fluid hypoosmolality. Mild to moderate hyponatremia, when the plasma sodium concentration is> 125 meq / l, is often asymptomatic. Early clinical symptoms are usually non-specific and include anorexia, nausea, and weakness.
    The clinical symptoms of lung cancer are largely determined by the location of the tumor, its size, growth form, and the nature of metastasis. Manifestations of lung cancer are very diverse: it is an enlarged focal formation in the lungs, visible with dynamic chest x-ray; symptoms of compression and obstruction of tissues and organs adjacent to the tumor; increase
  20. Pathogenesis of clinical manifestations
    Pheochromocytoma usually makes its debut with symptoms associated with excessive production of catecholamines and their systemic effect on organs and systems with a predominance of, as a rule, cardiovascular changes. By no means always hemodynamic fluctuations in pheochromocytoma are a direct consequence of the increased production of catecholamines directly by the tumor. One of the non-specific factors is
