Syphilis Prognosis

With proper antibiotic penicillin treatment, early syphilis infection can be cured wihthout causing permanent damage. Although later stages of syphilis also respond to antibiotics. The treatment will not repair any organ damage caused by the disease. Without the treatment, about one third of patients risk severe organ damage and death.
