‡ Late and late latent syphilis includes late latent syphilis, latent syphilis of unknown duration, neurosyphilis, and late syphilis with clinical manifestations other than neurosyphilis.

§ Rates include all cases of congenitally acquired syphilis per 100,000 live births. As of 1995, cases of congenital syphilis are obtained in hardcopy and electronic format on the basis of case reporting form CDC 73.126.

NR = No report.

NOTE: Adjustments to the number of cases reported from state health departments were made for hardcopy forms and for electronic data submissions through May 29, 2013 (see Appendix). The number of cases and the rates shown here supersede those published in previous reports. For more information regarding reporting, see Appendix, Interpreting STD Surveillance Data. Cases and rates shown in this table exclude the outlying areas of Guam, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands.
