Syphilis on the rise in Sacramento County

From the Sacramento Bee.

Syphilis seems like a bygone disease, but it's coming back, particularly in Sacramento.
Local doctors diagnosed 41 cases of primary and secondary syphilis (the early, less damaging phase of the disease) in the first half of 2011. In the second half, they identified 65 cases, an increase of 60 percent.
That's according to preliminary numbers from the California Department of Public Health, where officials expect Sacramento's totals to rise by at least 10 cases once the tallies are finalized in May.
