Caption: Congenital syphilis in the sweat ducts. Light micrograph of a section through a sweat duct of a baby with congenital syphilis. This disease is caused by Treponema pallidum bacteria (seen here stained brown). Congenital syphilis is transmitted to the baby during pregnancy or birth. Many syphilitic babies are born without symptoms, but over the first couple of years of life, enlargement of the liver and spleen, rash, fever, neurosyphilis, and lung inflammation may develop. If untreated, nose deformation, bone and joint abnormalities, and other symptoms may occur. Syphilis is treated with antibiotic drugs.
