Abstract

The rate of congenital syphilis is declining in the United States, but congenital syphilis is still a significant public health problem. Maternal serum screening is the mainstay of diagnosis. Maternal treatment will prevent most, but not all, cases of congenital syphilis. Access to prenatal care is critical to further reduce the rate of congenital syphilis.
