Abstract

Congenital syphilis is increasingly being diagnosed in developed countries after many years of decline. The liver is characteristically involved. However, fulminant hepatic failure and subsequent liver calcifications are both rare in patients with congenital syphilis. The infant reported here had both of these rare manifestations of this disease.
