The management shortcomings and assistance in public health found in Brazil, and as part of efforts to improve governance stands out the drawing up protocols for the organization of services. The Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are considered a health problem all over the world and there is a data scarcity in the male population. This study aimed to deploy a specialized outpatient clinic, estimate the prevalence of syndromic diagnosis of SDT and the syphilis, in addition to analyzing the risk factors in men. We performed a cross-sectional study in the years of 2014 and 2015. Tthe sample was constituted by 216 individuals interviewed during a medical consultation, in a public outpatient constructed for this purpose. The majority of men attended had more than 29 years, has completed the primary or middle school, belonged to social classes C or D and reported having heterosexual behavior. Despite the greater part have also mentioned prior knowledge about transmission of STDs, only 11.8% confirmed have used condom and about one-third of men do not return to the clinic after the initial consultation. Approximately 20% of the attended men presented verrucous syndrome and 14% were positive for syphilis serology . In the bivariate analysis, civil status and age were predictive variables for the syndromic diagnosis of DST. After this analysis, only the civil status remained statistically significant as a risk factor for some infectious syndrome. On the other hand, for the presence of syphilis, the consumption of illegal drugs in the last 12 months was predictor variable in the bivariate analysis, and being circumcised was considered an independent protection factor in the multivariate analysis. We concluded that is high the number of cases of syndromic diagnosis and syphilis in men attended at a specialized outpatient clinic, wherein the knowledge about the theme hasn't echoed in care measures, such as the use of condom. Associated with the data obtained, the male resistance in seeking medical assistance reinforces the need for specific and continuous strategies for prevention, screening, diagnosis and early treatment in this population group.
