Among HIV-positive women, hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection, injection drug use and being African American are independent risk factors for syphilis.

A recent published study indicated that while syphilis rates are highest among men who have sex with men (MSM), rates are rising among heterosexual drug users. The U.S. rate of syphilis diagnosis among infants, known as congenital syphilis, doubled in four years and hit a 20-year peak of 918 cases by 2017.
