Syphilis is an infectious disease caused by Treponema pallidum. Children experience 2 forms of syphilis, acquired syphilis and congenital syphilis, which results from transplacental transmission of spirochetes.

Worldwide, in recent years, the number of cases of primary and secondary syphilis has increased, along with inadequate control of pregnant women has contributed to the increase in Congenital Syphilis.

Syphilis, both in the early and late stages, can have numerous and complex manifestations and may simulate other diseases.

A high number of newborns can be asymptomatic,so serologic testing has the primary role in the diagnosis in both pregnant women and children.

This study will observe the clinical presentation and the laboratory of patients with CS treated.
