Q. 5 Both vulnerable, as South you hold: Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have heard different versions of how venereal diseases are contracted, that gonorrhea is local and contracted only by actual contact and that the germs cannot live outside the body. However, I have read that it may be contracted by heavy kissing if your mother had the disease. Apparently, it could not be contracted in any other way. I am advised that syphilis is a blood disease and contracted by receiving the germ through any possible break in the skin, whereby the germ could enter the bloodstream; evidently, these can survive outside the body. What tests are necessary to determine if one has either of these diseases? Dear Reader In this day of widespread venereal dis- ease, it is important to un- derstand clearly how they are spread. It is usually from sex- ual activity but not always. Gonorrhea is almost always a result of sexual activity. It can be passed by the mother to the baby at birth, par- ticularly affecting the baby's eyes. Rarely infant and pre- adolescent girls have been infected by contact with towels or linens that have been contaminated with gonorrhea. This, has caused rare outbreaks ofgonorrhea in an institution. The germ is particularly fond of mucous linings, and that is why it at- tacks the urinary and genital tract. You will not have a tendency to get gonorrhea later in life from heavy kissing, just because either of your parents had the disease. Incidently, having recovered from an attack of gonorrhea does not confer im- munity. You can get it again if you are exposed. Syphilis caused by the corkscrew-shape germ called a spirochete. It can be dis- seminated by the bloodstream in the course of the infection. Infected blood is one way of transmitting it. However, blood is not essential. Moisture is. It is usually tran- smitted when infected moist dc iplets are passed from an infected person. A sore on the lip from syphilis could be a way of transmitting the dis- ease to another person. Rarely an innocent is infected, for example, by a moist droplet on a glass from an infected person This is rare because the germ cannot survive outside the body and not at all without moisture. In most cases, it is transmitted by sexual activity. I should mention that even untreated syphilis cases are not always able to transmit the disease. It is most contagious only dur- ing a limited time that the person has it, even though the disease may progress to cause a great damage to the infected person. Gonorrhea is usually diag- nosed by a smear of secre- tions on a glass slide. By spec- ial staining techniques, the organism can be identified. There are some new collec- tion methods that have made it easier to do this as an office procedure. Syphilis is diagnosed by blood tests. A chemical reac- tion (serology; test is used to find most cases. You can iden- tify the germs from an early sore caused by the infection.
