South Dakota: Syphilis Cases Reported in Sioux Falls

August 25, 2006

State health authorities are investigating syphilis diagnoses among seven Sioux Falls residents ages 21-50 -- the largest number of cases in the state since 1990. Last year, South Dakota reported just two cases. "We had basically eliminated endemic syphilis in South Dakota over the past few years, so to have this cluster occur is a concern," said Lon Kightlinger, state epidemiologist. Most of the cases involved heterosexual sex with multiple partners, Kightlinger said.
