|hepatitis with syphilis
Dec 18, 2000
I WOULD LIKE SOME INFO ON THE EFFECTS OF HEPATITIS WITH SYPHILIS I CAN FIND A THING ABOUT HEPATITIS AND SYPHILIS TOGETHER I NEED SOME INFO
Response from Dr. Dieterich
The two are both very treatable diseases, if that is what you mean. Rarely syphilis will cause hepatitis by itself, but more commonly people have both, because of shared risk factors. If you treat the syphilis, then the syphilitic hepatitis will resolve, but you must be sure that you don't have viral hepatitis as well. Good luck, get treated! DTD
