Abstract

Congenital syphilis continues to occur despite the advances in testing of pregnant women in many countries and the availability of penicillin since 1943. This is a report of a child with multiple systemic manifestations of congenital syphilis. This is one of the few cases of survival with pituitary involvement from congenital syphilis and the first noted case in which diabetes insipidus developed. Institution of routine testing in all countries might have prevented the severe manifestations of syphilis seen in this child.
