Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Few data exist on the serologic outcome of treponemal tests (TT) in congenital syphilis. Of 16 cases in Edmonton, Canada from 2005-2010, 11 (69%) infants sero-reverted their TT by 18 months. Cases that did not sero-revert their TT were statistically more likely to have delayed treatment and to have higher maternal RPR titres at birth.
