SYPHILIS – CONGENITAL SYPHILIS

The early lesions are similar to those of secondary syphilis with rhinitis, rash, bone involvement, hepatosplenomegaly, meningitis and anaemia.

Late congenital syphilis is comparable to late acquired syphilis. It usually occurs after 2 years of age. Manifestations include Hutchinson’s triad (interstitial keratitis, incisor defects and perceptive deafness), gummas and neurosyphilis. Cardiovascular lesions do not occur in congenital syphilis.
