Abstract

FAGUNDEZ, Yohana et al. Ocular syphilis as a manifestation of neurolues: about a clinical case. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2020, vol.5, n.1, pp.28-32.  Epub Mar 01, 2020. ISSN 2393-6797.  http://dx.doi.org/10.26445/05.01.3.

Ocular syphilis is an uncommon type of neurosyphilis, which can occur at any stage of the disease. The clinical presentation can be heterogeneous, with uveitis being the most frequent form. The diagnosis is confirmed with serology and a study of the cerebrospinal fluid should be performed to rule out meningeal involvement.

Its diagnosis and early treatment allow the prevention of neurological complications such as irreversible blindness. We present a clinical case of a patient who presents with panuveitis and serological diagnosis of syphilis presenting an excellent response to treatment.

Keywords : ocular syphilis; neurosyphilis; panuveitis.
