It has long been recognized that there are very marked differences clinically in syphilis in the two sexes, but the full import of these variations is not usually brought to the mind of the internist as constituting definite factors in diagnosis. Both sexes are usually approached along the same line diagnostically, and as a result syphilis is often not suspected in women when it does exist. Unfortunately most of the textbooks have failed to recognize these important differences at all or only very incidentally; and only three of the most recent works on syphilology make any adequate mention of them.
