Page 123 Book Meme (Work Edition)

I've cut out step 6, which is "tag 5 people", 'cause I don't like blog-tagging - mostly because no one ever blog-tags me.

1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.

Without treatment, sympotms and signs abate over 3-12 weeks, but in up to 20% of individuals may recur during aperiod known as early latency, a 2-year period in the UK (1 year in the USA). Late latency is based on reactive syphilis serology with no clinical manifestations for at least 2 years. This can continue for many years before the late stages of syphilis become apparent.

Food for thought eh Simon?

(From Kumar & Clark, "Clinical Medicine 6th Ed." (2005). Hey, you did say the nearest book).
