Were you looking for information about Syphilis? Syphliss is a common misspelling of syphilis.
Syphilis is a form of sexually transmitted disease that is caused by bacteria. Transmission of this disease occurs through direct contact with a syphilis sore, which can be found on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum, but most infected individuals have no visible sores or rashes and do not even know that they are infected. If left untreated, syphilis can be fatal. Penicillin is the preferred drug used to treat the disease at all stages.
