Newborns infected with syphilis are often free of symptoms upon delivery (2/3 of cases) and may even have negative syphilis test results if their mother was treated towards the end of her pregnancy. The infection and symptoms may develop during the first two years of life, or later in some cases. A close follow-up is essential. At times, the symptoms may be subtle including such signs as : low birth weight, a skin eruption or rash, nasal infection or anemia.
