A retrospective data analysis of syphilitic patients attending the Skin and Venereol Diseases Department in a Government Hospital in Mangalore city was studied for 8 years (1989-96). Out of the total number of patients attending the hospital in the eight years, syphilitic patients constituted 0.0385%. Even though the number of syphilitic patients attending the department has declined over 8 years, the prevalence of syphilitic patients does not show a satisfactory decrease.
