Were you looking for information about Syphilis? Siphilis is a common misspelling of syphilis.
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that progresses in four stages, with symptoms varying with each of these stages. It is spread through direct contact with a syphilis sore (which may occur on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or lips) during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. To prevent this disease, you must avoid contact with infected tissues and bodily fluids of a person who has it, although most individuals with syphilis have no visible sores or rashes.
