    Abstract

    A cluster of five (3 primary and 2 early latent) cases of syphilis were identified in young heterosexuals in the east of England. Three were symptomatic at presentation. No further cases linked to this cluster have been diagnosed since June 2010. Effective partner notification is key to the identification and treatment of infected contacts.
