In this paper, we study the global properties of an SIR epidemic model with distributed delays, where there are several parallel infective stages, and some of the infected cells are detected and treated, which others remain undetected and untreated. The model is analyzed by determining a basic reproduction number $R_0$, and by using Lyapunov functionals, we prove that the infection-free equilibrium $E^0$ of system (3) is globally asymptotically attractive when $R_0\leq 1$, and that the unique infected equilibrium $E^*$ of system (3) exists and it is globally asymptotically attractive when $R_0>1$.
