Recent Increase in Syphilis Cases among Women in New York City

Although the number of cases is still relatively small, rates of syphilis increased 36% from 2014 to 2015, and the occurrence of 36 cases in the first 6 months of 2016 suggests that the trend will continue. Report syphilis cases by calling the Provider Access Line (PAL) at 1-866-692-3641 or submit a Universal Reporting Form

Please see the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Alert #14 for complete details. Please share with all clinical staff in Obstetrics and Gynecology; Pediatrics; Adolescent, Internal, Family, and Emergency Medicine; Primary Care; Dermatology; Infectious Diseases; and Urgent Care.

Sincerely,

WellCare of New York
