Abstract zur Publikation: Syphilis on the rise again in Germany – results from surveillance data for 2011

Bremer V, Marcus U, Hamouda O (2012): Syphilis on the rise again in Germany – results from surveillance data for 2011.
Euro Surveill. 17 (29): pii=20222.

In Germany, syphilis is notified anonymously. In 2011, 3,698 cases (incidence 4.5/100,000 inhabitants) were notified, an increase of 22% over 2010. The increase was higher in men (23%) than women (13%) and 94% of the cases were male. Information on the possible way of transmission was available for 72% of cases. Of these, 84% were men who have sex with men, who seem to play a major role in the renewed increase in syphilis cases.
