MIGUEL GOMEZ, A. de  y  BENEDICTO SANCHEZ, J.R.. Syphilitic hepatitis: "a non-frecuent" pathology. Medifam [online]. 2002, vol.12, n.3, pp.108-110. ISSN 1131-5768.

Primary Care has an important role dealing with several pathologies. However, due to its little effect and sometimes an unknown control of them we resort to Specialized Care once they are diagnosed. A 57 year old man, homosexual, involved in many risky sexual intercourse, appears with a balanitis followed by general discomfort, fever, jaundice, coluria and hepatomegaly. The study confirms us an "Acute Hepatitis" of "unknown reason", ruling out viral etiology and toxic. In the development of this clinic case we see how it develops to Syphilitic Hepatitis and its complete cure. The managemente of the pathology has always been made from Primary Care maintaining a total attention to the patient and thanks to a multidisciplinary group.

Palabras clave : Syphilitic Hepatitis; Primary Health Care.
