Abstract

In six cases of congenital syphilis in newborn at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center over a seven-month period the clinical findings fell into two categories related to the time of onset of symptoms. Infants ill in the nursery presented evidence of transplacental infection; infants who became ill later showed the “classic” findings of rash, rhinorrhea and pseudoparalysis.
