PMID:  2594224     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Between 1984 and 1987, the number of reported cases of congenital syphilis in New Jersey tripled. Findings indicate an increase in early syphilis among females of childbearing age living in areas of high syphilis morbidity, reflecting, possibly, lifestyle changes within populations already at risk for the disease. Future studies and interventions are needed.
