As Per Modern Aspect:

Congenital syphilis is a severe, disabling, life-threatening and multisystem infection seen in infants that are caused by Treponema Pallidum and is transmitted to the fetus via the placenta. Pregnant women who have syphilis can spread the disease through the placenta to the unborn child.

What are the Causes of Congenital Syphilis?

Congenital syphilis is caused due to the bacteria Treponema pallidum, which is passed from mother to child during the stage of fetal development or at birth thus, children are prone to affect with congenital syphilis when they are in the womb and die shortly before or after birth. However, the high risk of transmission of infection to the fetus is in the third trimester of pregnancy.
