Congenital syphilis offers many parallels with perinatal HIV infection. Both affect multiple organs including the central nervous system may be asymptomatic for months to years, and pose diagnostic dilemmas, especially from a laboratory perspective. Syphilis is a co-infection in some cases of HIV. Public policy issues raised by the AIDS epidemic, including stigmatization, discrimination, and denial of access to health care, have their antecedents in syphilis.
