Resumen

CHUNGARA MONTANO, Jorge; BANDA JARA, Beatriz  y  MORENO LAGOS, Omar. SÍFILIS CONGENITA PRESENTACION DE UN CASO CLINICO RADIOLÓGICO. Cuad. - Hosp. Clín. [online]. 2006, vol.51, n.2, pp. 66-69. ISSN 1562-6776.

Congenital syphilis originates by maternal infection and is due to the transplacental transmission which the fetus suffers during pregnancy. In underdeveloped countries, the absence of an early diagnostic test during prenatal care has to be mentioned as a risk factor as well as the poor information on this disease that exists among mothers, especially teenage mothers. Due to these facts the progression of the disease frequently leads to death in uterus of the fetus or to multiple birth defects when the baby is born. We present the case of a newborn baby whose infected mother was not treated, and who after birth presented important clinical signs due to which a series of tests were carried out among which the radiology of the long bones stands out where the typical alterations of the disease are seen.

Palabras clave : Congenital syphilis; maternal infection; spirochete.
