Lues maligna in an HIV-infected patient.
Rev Soc Bras Med Trop. 2005 Mar-Apr; 38(2):181-4.RS

Abstract

We report such a case of malignant syphilis in a 42-year-old HIV-infected man, co-infected with hepatitis B virus, who presented neurolues and the classical skin lesions of lues maligna. The serum VDRL titer, which was 1:64 at presentation, increased to 1:2,048 three months after successful therapy with penicillin, decreasing 15 months later to 1:8.
