Syphilis in Women and Congenital Syphilis
Los Angeles County has recently seen an increase
in the number of syphilis cases among women. These increases have
also led to a dramatic increase of congenital syphilis.
Congenital syphilis is a preventable condition
that results from untreated syphilis during pregnancy, with
potentially severe consequences for the infected infants including
stillbirth, neonatal death, and birth defects.
Healthcare providers play a critical role in
addressing the syphilis epidemic by identifying and treating
infected patients. Proper screening at the first prenatal visit,
early in the third trimester, and at delivery is key. Click

Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly
recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap
during 3rd trimester to protect
newborns from pertussis. Visit
or to learn more about what your office can do
to prevent pertussis.
