Abstract

Congenital syphilis is a completely preventable disease, but it still occurs. It usually involves multiple organs, which may cause neurological or skeletal disabilities or death in the fetus or newborn. Although lung involvement is rare in congenital syphilis, we should consider pneumonia alba when respiratory symptoms or radiologic findings are abnormal. We first report herein two cases of pneumonia alba with high resolution computerized tomography (HRCT) findings.
