The ecologic relationship between the incidence of reactive serologic tests for syphilis among 2, 229 newborns and diagnoses that included cocaine dependence among 17,219 hospitalized women ages 15-44 in New York City was investigated.
Citywide, race-specific and zip code-specific annual rates were computed.
The residential zip codes were grouped into quartiles by cumulative level of diagnoses that included cocaine dependence, and citywide and race-specific annual rates of congenital syphilis were computed in each quartile.
From 1982 to 1988, the citywide rate of congenital syphilis for all races increased from 1.2 to 5.8 per 1, 000 live births, while rates of cocaine dependence discharges increased from 23.3 to 423.3. per 100, 000 women of all races during the same period.
