Abstract

The early clinical signs and symptoms of congenital syphilis are diverse but, if undiagnosed, signs of the disease may subside until the late stigmata appear. We report a case that illustrates that the haematological signs and symptoms may be so severe as to mimic a diagnosis of leukaemia or disseminated malignant disease.
