    So, I'm working on a project about syphilis and I've gotten almost all of it done, except that I really, REALLY feel like I'm falling short on the pathophysiology section. Do any of you have any awesome go-to websites that describe pathophysiology right down to the very last detail? (and that will be accepted as reliable, of course)

    Here's the CDC web page on syphylis: Syphilis - STD information from CDC Looks like the fact sheets have some good information.

    Here's a search page from Medscape (free membership required to read certain articles): Medscape: Medscape Access

    This medscape journal article has a great overview, pathophysiology, etiology and epidemiology on syphylis (again free membership required to view, but you can also earn free CEU's): Article title: Syphyilis, Author: Brian Euerle, MD, FACEP; Chief Editor: Burke A Cunha, MD updated Jan 6, 2012 (so very current information) Medscape: Medscape Access

    I actually have already used Euerle's article and the CDC has some awesome information that I used, especially for the incidence and trends. Amazing graphs! I've just stumbled onto this: Chapter II. Pathophysiology of Syphilis, which is extremely detailed in a way that I love, but I'm having a hard time deciding if its an academic enough source. What do you think?

    Beachy beat me..... Medscape is a very good place to go for resources. It is free and no strings. Join and you will have access to a plethora of information.

    Good luck

    Definitely an academic enough source, especially his credentials. Nice work.

    Whoo hooo!!!! You guys are the BEST!!!!!! I was finding some great sources, but they just weren't as detailed as I feel this really needs to be. I want right down to each and every affected cell-- how are they responding, why is their response leading to symptoms, what is happening in between each stage to cause the next stage (not just general "inflammation causes damage", but MORE), etc. This is for a pathophysiology class, so I was feeling a bit lame knowing that THAT was the part of it that I was falling short on. Anyway, Thank you!!!!
