NAME: Phil Head
BLOOD PRESSURE: 120/80
-Open sore on mouth
-Skin Rash Cure We have diagnosed Phil Head with syphilis. Mr. Head has an open sore, that's not healing very quickly and a skin rash that's not going away. We have concluded that Mr. Head is on the Secondary stage of this STI, so we can still cure him.
Since Mr. Head has had the infection for less than a year, we can cure him by giving him a single dose of penicillin. If Mr. Head is allergic to penicillin, we can give him a single dose of tetracycline or doxycycline.
While Phil is being treated of syphilis, he will have to abstain from any sort of sexual activity. By Nichole Conte, Linda Zvyagintseva, and Emily Norton What's Up Doc? Symptoms of Mr. Head's Diagnosis There are four different stages of Mr. Head's diagnosis.
1.) Primary Stage:
One of the first signs of this sexually transmitted infection is a chancre, (pronounced "shank-er"). Since this infection is transmitted by sexual contact, a chancre would usually be found on/in the mouth, in the anus or in a genital area.
2.) Secondary Stage:
A skin rash and other symptoms are likely to show up 2-8 weeks after the person is infected. In the secondary stage, it is very easy to spread the infection through contact with the mouth, anus or genital areas.
3.) Latent Stage:
When the rash clears, the person that's infected may have an interval with no symptoms. This stage is often called the "hidden stage." Although the symptoms go away, the pathogens that cause this STI are damaging your internal organs. The latent stage can last up to 20 years, and some pregnant women might not even know they have this STI until they have a baby born with it.
4.) Late (Tertiary) Stage
If this STI is not found and cured in the early stages, it can cause blindness, problems with the nervous system and the heart, and mental disorders. It can also cause death. Tests We tested Phil Head for his blood iron level,
(hematocrit), and we did a test for CBC (Complete Blood Count). He has a normal blood count and iron level, but there was still something wrong with his blood.
We later tested Mr. Head for any sexually transmitted pathogens, and there was treponema pallidum in his blood. SOCIAL HISTORY:
-Has smoked, quit in 2006
-Has 5 drinks/week
-No surgeries Diagnosis Treponema pallidum is a bacteria that causes syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease. Treponema pallidum has an characteristical helix shape.Treponema pallidum belongs to the Spirochete family. Spirochetes are basic bacteria, they have a maximum of 1,000 genes.
