Aim. To study the prevalence and features of the clinical course of syphilis in Tajikistan at the present stage.
Material and Methods. Retrospectively, according to regional reports and reports of state statistics on the syphilis morbidity and its clinical forms in Tajikistan, the analysis of the overall syphilis morbidity in the RT regions and Dushanbe was carried out. The studies covered the period from 1995 to 2017.
Results. It was found that in 2017, compared with 2001, there was a significant decrease in the morbidity both in the RT (4,5 against 11,7, respectively) and in Dushanbe (11,7 against 30,1, respectively). There is an increase of early forms of syphilis, compared with later (95,4% against 4,6%). Among the early forms, early latent syphilis was more frequently registered (77,9%).
Conclusion. Thanks to preventive measures, stabilization of the syphilis morbidity in the RT was achieved. The overwhelming number of patients were patients with early latent syphilis, which again may lead to a deterioration of the epidemiological situation.
