It seems that society has forgotten about syphilis. Well, its time to remember because its on the rise. And babies are getting it too! How? Dr. Candice and Pediatric Hospitalist, Dr. Bande Virgil explain about congenital syphilis on this episode of KIDing Around.

They discuss:

  • Definition of congenital syphilis
  • Potential causes for the increase rates
  • Diagnosis of congenital syphilis
  • Treatment of congenital syphilis
  • Prevention of syphilis in mother and baby

As always, prevention, early detection and treatment are key to controlling this life-threatening infection.

Thank You, Dr. Bande Virgil!
