The chancre forms at the site of the treponeme inoculation and is usually a single lesion, although multiple lesions have been reported to occur at the same time (4).
Harper and Lukehart agree that to settle such issues, scientists next need to sequence whole genomes of different treponeme strains.
Treponemes then multiply and circulate to the regional lymph nodes and internal organs, leading to a variety of clinical manifestations based on the stage of the infection (primary, secondary, and latent/late), the time that has elapsed since inoculation, and the host's immune response.

Pathogenic treponemes are found in the lesions of syphilis.
Molecular epidemiology of oral treponemes in patients with periodontitis and in periodontitis resistant subjects.
Non-treponemal tests measure IgM and IgG antibodies to nonspecific antigens, such as lipoidal material released from damaged host cells and lipoprotein-like material released from the treponemes.

Although an alerted immune system kills billions of treponemes after syphilis infection, enough can survive to kick off primary syphilis (Figure 3).
Serodiagnosis of syphilis involves the detection of two distinct types of antibodies: 1) nontreponemal antibodies directed against lipoidal antigens released from damaged host cells and possibly from the treponemes themselves and 2) treponemal antibodies directed against T.
Darkfield microscopy allows visualization of live treponemes obtained from a variety of cutaneous or mucous membrane lesions, as follows.
