Congenital syphilis and hepatic infarction, a not previously reported association. A pediatric case report.

During pregnancy, Treponema pallidum infection of the fetus can cause congenital syphilis. Although endothelial disease is common, it is not always present in congenital cases. Imaging studies revealed the presence of an injury in the liver's left lobe without mass effect. The patient was disease-free three months after, and the control MRI revealed atrophy of the left lobe, but the rest of the parenchyma remained unchanged.

Missed opportunities for screening congenital syphilis early during pregnancy: A case report and brief literature review.

In a woman whose syphilis screening resulted in negative at 16 weeks of gestation, we report a case of fetal T. pallidum infection and premature delivery. This case reveals that even if early syphilis screening of pregnant women is negative, they may become infected with T. pallidum later in pregnancy. Therefore, patients with a rash without an apparent cause should be excluded from the clinic. The abovementioned causes may help reduce the risk of T. pallidum infection in pregnant women and infants.

Congenital syphilis in the twenty-first century: an area-based study.

All newborns and children referred from January 2010 to June 2022 were exposed to Treponema pallidum in utero and/or congenitally infected with Treponema pallidum in utero and/or congenitally infected at the Federico II University of Naples' Perinatal and Pediatric Infectious Disease Units, enrolling all newborns and children from January 2010 to June 2022. Since 2017, the number of referred neonates tripled, though late maternal diagnoses did not significantly differ, according to the population of late maternal diagnoses. When compared to mother of uncovered infants, mothers of CS cases were younger, had less recent pregnancies, and were first diagnosed with syphilis at a later stage of pregnancy.
