Report of Syphilis outbreak in Budapest
News about: Hungary
[In 2004, the CDC reported an outbreak of work-related human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the heterosexual segment of the adult film industry in Los Angeles, California (<http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5437a3.htm>). At that time, a male performer who had tested HIV negative only 3 days earlier infected 3 of 14 female performers. This outbreak drew attention to the serious risk for sexually transmitted disease (STD) infections in this industry and the need for employing all available safeguards to reduce transmission of HIV and other STDs, such as syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes simplex virus, human papillomavirus, hepatitis B, chlamydial or trichomonal infection, or diseases transmitted through the fecal-oral route.
