Abstract
The skeleton of a 9-10 year-old child exhibiting evidence of congenital syphilis was excavated in Szentkirály, in the Southern middle part of Hungary. The archaeological indicators dated it to the early 17th century. The authors carried out macroscopic, microscopic and X-ray analyses. The significance of this case consists on the one hand in the fact that this is the first skeleton with congenital syphilis in Hungary, on the other hand it is a new chance for palaeopathology. We can start the research of the appearance and spread of syphilis in Hungary.
