Specific histological alterations have been observed in 23 of the 25 patients with early syphilis with laboratory findings suggesting liver damage. Treponema was detected in the area of liver lesion in 70% of the patients. Control examination carried out after penicillin therapy showed regression of the alterations. On the basis of the findings the authors assert that treponema might induce hepatitis in early syphilis differing liver iver damage of other origin.
