Question by hotgirl2004_54: Is syphilis a viral infection or a bacterium infection?
I need this information for my health quiz that I am taking in two weeks.
Answer by Masto
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. It has often been called “the great imitator” because so many of the signs and symptoms are indistinguishable from those of other diseases.
