The objective of this study was to identify health worker barriers to syphilis screening in pregnant women during prenatal care in the Los Andes Health Network, and to analyze the factors that limit the availability of rapid syphilis tests
As blood is routinely drawn during the antenatal checkup for haemoglobin, a free syphilis test
was offered to all participants.
Four of six treatment failures delivered within two weeks of treatment (possible Jarisch- Herxheimer reactions) Arnesen -- (a) No data on postpartum 2015 (24) syphilis test
CDC (b) 1998 Penicillin Maternal demographics (29) similar between cases and controls Greenwood -- Dates of study for cases and 1994 (17) controls overlapped but were not equal periods of time (longer for cases) Ingraham -- Dates of study for cases and 1950 (31) controls overlapped but were not all the same dates Lumbiganon Decision Those negative for syphilis 2002 (25) made at the and those treated were in institutional the control group.
The subset of nine variables was also validated for all women with positive syphilis test
results (n = 1 075) and (due to resource constraints) 50 randomly selected women with no history of syphilis infection from each of the six facilities (n = 300).
Interpretation of syphilis test
results is often difficult in asymptomatic patients, especially when new-generation tests are used in low-prevalence countries (13).
