The aim of the syphilologist and the clinician is to prevent cardiovascular syphilis by early and adequate treatment of the primary infection; the aim of the syphilologist, the cardiologist, and the clinician is to recognize and treat cardiovascular syphilis in its earliest form and as early as possible, in order to prevent the complications that may arise therefrom. Although the former depends primarily on the education of the patient who must seek early treatment and avoid delinquency of treatment, the latter depends primarily on the education of the physician who must be alert to the recognition of this condition.
