A50-A64 Infections with a Predominantly Sexual Mode of Transmission

A50 Congenital Syphilis

A51 Early Syphilis

A52 Late Syphilis

Infections with a predominantly sexual mode of transmission A50-A64 >

 

Congenital syphilis A50- >

 

Clinical Information

A life-threatening bacterial infection of the newborn caused by treponema pallidum.

It is transmitted to the infant from a mother with syphilis through the placenta

during pregnancy. Signs and symptoms include irritability, fever, failure to thrive,

saddle nose, cutaneous rash, and pneumonia.

Syphilis acquired in utero and manifested by any of several characteristic tooth

hutchinson's teeth) or bone malformations and by active mucocutaneous syphilis at

birth or shortly thereafter. Ocular and neurologic changes may also occur.

 

Gonococcal infection A54- >

 

Clinical Information

A common sexually transmitted bacterial infection caused by neisseria gonorrhea.

It is transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse. Infected individuals

may be asymptomatic. Symptoms in males include burning sensation during urination,

discharge from the penis, and painful swelling of the testes. Symptoms in females

include painful urination, vaginal discharge, and vaginal bleeding between periods.

If untreated, the infection may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease.

Acute infectious disease characterized by primary invasion of the urogenital tract.

The etiologic agent, neisseria gonorrhoeae, was isolated by neisser in 1879.

Acute infectious disease characterized by primary invasion of the urogenital tract;

the etiologic agent is neisseria gonorrhoeae.

Gonorrhea is a curable sexually transmitted disease. It is most common in young

adults. The bacteria that cause gonorrhea can infect the genital tract, mouth or anus.

Gonorrhea does not always cause symptoms, especially in women. In men, gonorrhea can

cause pain when urinating and discharge from the penis. If untreated, it can cause

epididymitis, which affects the testicles and can lead to infertility. In women,

gonorrhea can cause bleeding between periods, pain when urinating and increased discharge

from the vagina. If untreated, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which causes

problems with pregnancy and infertility. Gonorrhea can pass from mother to baby during

pregnancy. You can cure gonorrhea with antibiotics prescribed by your health care provider.

Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces, but does not eliminate, the risk of catching

or spreading gonorrhea.

 

Chlamydial lymphogranuloma (venereum) A55- >

 

Applicable To

Climatic or tropical bubo

Durand-Nicolas-Favre disease

Esthiomene

Lymphogranuloma inguinale

Clinical Information

Subacute inflammation of the inguinal lymph glands caused by certain immunotypes of

chlamydia trachomatis. It is a sexually transmitted disease in the United States But

is more widespread in developing countries. It is distinguished from granuloma venereum

(see granuloma inguinale), which is caused by calymmatobacterium granulomatis.

Subacute inflammation of the inguinal lymph glands caused by certain immunotypes of

chlamydia trachomatis; a sexually transmitted disease in the United States but is more

widespread in developing countries; do not confuse with granuloma venereum, which is

caused by calymmatobacterium granulomatis, for this use enterobacteriaceae disease.

 

Other sexually transmitted chlamydial diseases A56- >

conditions classified to A74.-

Includes

sexually transmitted diseases due to Chlamydia

trachomatis

 

Chancroid A57- >

Applicable To

Ulcus molle

Clinical Information

Acute, localized autoinoculable infectious disease usually acquired through sexual contact.

Caused by haemophilus ducreyi, it occurs endemically almost worldwide, especially in tropical

and subtropical countries and more commonly in seaports and urban areas than in rural areas.

 

Granuloma inguinale A58- >

 

Applicable To

Donovanosis

Clinical Information

Anogenital ulcers caused by calymmatobacterium granulomatis as distinguished from lymphogranuloma

inguinale (see lymphogranuloma venereum) caused by chlamydia trachomatis. Diagnosis is made by

demonstration of typical intracellular donovan bodies in crushed-tissue smears.

 

Trichomoniasis A59- >

Clinical Information

Infections in birds and mammals produced by various species of trichomonas.

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a parasite. It affects both women

and men, but symptoms are more common in women. Symptoms in women include a green or yellow

discharge from the vagina, itching in or near the vagina and discomfort with urination.

Most men with trichomoniasis don't have any symptoms, but it can cause irritation inside the penis.

you can cure trichomoniasis with antibiotics. In men, the infection usually goes away on its own

without causing symptoms. But an infected man can continue to infect or reinfect a woman until he

gets treated. So it's important that both partners get treated at the same time. Correct usage of

latex condoms greatly reduces, but does not eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading trichomoniasis.

 

Unspecified sexually transmitted disease A64- >

 

Clinical Information

A disorder acquired through sexual contact.

Any contagious disease acquired during sexual contact; e.g. Syphilis, gonorrhea, chancroid.

Diseases due to or propagated by sexual contact.

Sexually transmitted diseases (stds) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone

who has the infection. The causes of stds are bacteria, parasites and viruses. There are more than

20 types of stds, including

chlamydia

gonorrhea

genital herpes

hiv/aids

hpv

syphilis

trichomoniasis

most stds affect both men and women, but in many cases the health problems they cause can be more

severe for women. If a pregnant woman has an std, it can cause serious health problems for the baby.

if you have an std caused by bacteria or parasites, your health care provider can treat it with

antibiotics or other medicines. If you have an std caused by a virus, there is no cure.

Sometimes medicines can keep the disease under control. Correct usage of latex condoms greatly

reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading stds.
