In six years, the diagnosis of syphilis in pregnant women increased more than 1,000% in the State of São Paulo, according to a study by the Department of Health This result is a consequence of the growing number of municipalities and services which are now reporting cases. The provision of notifiers went from 117 to 1,046 during the period.

The figures show that in 2005 the cities of São Paulo reported 189 cases of syphilis in pregnant women, jumping to 3,260 in 2011. The number of cities that notificavam syphilis cases increased from 55 in 2005 to 230 in 2010. According to the study, half of women who have had the disease aged 20 to 29 years.

The extension diagnosis allows the realization of preventive work by public health to prevent congenital syphilis. The disease is transmitted to the baby through the placenta, with the risk of premature abortion, miscarriage and damage to the child's health, such as low weight, deafness, dental and bone deformities, including mental retardation and neonatal death.
