Abstract

Nephrotic syndrome is a well-recognized entity in congenital syphilis but leucocytoclastic vasculitis has not yet been described. We report a case of nephrotic syndrome and leucocytoclastic vasculitis associated with congenital syphilis in a 45-day-old male infant who did well after treatment with intravenous penicillin.
