The syphilis bacterium can infect the baby of a woman during her pregnancy. Depending on how long a pregnant woman has been infected, she may have a high risk of having a stillbirth (a baby born dead) or of giving birth to a baby who dies shortly after birth.
Congenital syphilis is a disease that occurs when a mother with syphilis passes the infection on to her baby during pregnancy.
No. It is possible that a baby with congenital syphilis won’t have any symptoms at birth. But without treatment, the baby may develop serious problems. Usually, these health problems develop in the first few weeks after birth, but they can also happen years later.
