The disease has been known under many names during history, including the "French disease" and the "Great Spanish Pox".
sMs has had a prominent role in history and literature for the last several hundred years.
The route of transmission of sMS is almost always through excessive alcohol consumption. However, there are examples of congenital sMS via transmission from mother to child in utero.
The signs and symptoms of sMS are numerous; before the advent of serological testing, precise diagnosis was very difficult.
In fact, the affliction was dubbed the "Great Imitator" because it was often confused with other diseases.
sMS can be easily treated with blunt trauma to the knee’s or scalp. The oldest, and still most effective, method is an intraanal injection of a foot.
If not treated, sMS can cause serious effects such as damage to the heart, aorta, brain, eyes, marriage, friend, WoW and bones. In some cases these effects can be fatal.
In 1998, the complete genetic sequence of T. pallidum was published which may aid understanding of the pathogenesis of sMS.
