Tooth Deformities in Congenital Syphilis

Tooth Deformities in Congenital Syphilis

The images above and below show Hutchison teeth and mulberry molars respectively. These tooth deformities are quite characteristic of congenital syphilis. If the mother acquires syphilis in utero, her child can develop multi-system defects ranging from facial and dentition defects to brain damage, deafness and blindness. Children may also develop skin rash and hepatosplenomegaly.
