what are the causes of pinta's disease and what are the reasons for pinta's disease

The main cause of pintamiosis is caused by Treponema pintamiensis

First, the cause of the disease

Treponema carateum is similar to Treponema pallidum in morphological and biological characters, and can not be distinguished from Treponema pallidum subspecies (syphilis) in morphology and serology. Treponema pintamiensis is 0.13 ~ 0.15 μ m wide and 10 ~ 13 μ m long, and its movement modes are various. Aniline stain is not easy to stain and cannot grow on inanimate culture medium, but it can infect humans and chimpanzees. Human-to-human transmission is mainly through physical contact.

Second, the pathogenesis

Treponema pintamiensis spreads through skin contact, enters the human body from the damaged skin, spreads to the whole body with lymph or blood after local reproduction, and causes skin lesions and lymph node enlargement.
