  Treponematosis, also known as treponemiasis, traditionally refers to the group of nonvenereal diseases (including endemic syphilis [nonvenereal syphilis]) caused by Treponema species that are morphologically and serologically identical to each other and to Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum, the cause of venereal from T pallidum subspecies . The treponematoses form an interesting group of infections caused by a group of closely related spirochetes found in humans and primates. At present, the bacteria responsible for the treponematoses are all classified as subspecies of Treponema pallidum; commercially available serologic tests remain incapable of differentiating between venereal and non-venereal infections.   Syphilis is caused by Treponema pallidum, a thin spiral-shaped microorganism. Treponematoses that are passed nonvenereally include Yaws, Bejel, and Pinta, which are caused by subspecies T. pallidum pertenue, subspecies T. Author: Floyd C. Knoop. Treponematosis is a term used to individually describe any of the diseases caused by four members of the bacterial genus four diseases are collectively referred to as treponematoses.
