Abstract

In 17 out of 176 cases of early syphilis (seropositive syphilis I; syphilis II) liver function tests yielded a positive result. In these patients a significant increase in the serum IgG, IgM and coeruloplasmin levels and a decrease in the transferrin level was found. The concentrations of α 2 macroglobulin and of β 1 C globulin were practically unaffected. Liver biopsy revealed hepatitis of variable severity in 13 patients with focal necroses or a proliferative process affecting the walls of the central veins, the arterioles and the branches of the portal vein. In 7 cases the presence of Treponema in the liver was demonstrated. (Journal received Nov. 1976).
