proteinuria, syphilis, pregnancy, membranous nephropathy
Medicine and Health Sciences
Syphilis has the potential to result in serious irreversible morbidity and mortality during pregnancy and has been increasing in incidence across the United States. While syphilis is a common disease and a known but rare cause of membranous nephropathy, it can complicate the clinical picture and obscure accurate diagnosis of women presenting with proteinuria during pregnancy. We report a case of proteinuria with syphilis in the second trimester of pregnancy as an educational review.
