[Secondary syphilis with ocular involvement in a 77-year-old man].
Lakartidningen. 2005 Aug 29-Sep 4; 102(35):2399-400.L

Abstract

A 77 year old man complained of vision loss and presented psoriasiform skin manifestations. A bilateral panuveitis was observed and after extensive investigation including vitrectomy the patient was diagnosed with secondary syphilis with ocular involvement. Syphilis has shown an increasing incidence in Sweden especially within the group of men who have sex with men. This case report reminds us of the diversity of symptoms which syphilis may present and the importance of PCR to demonstrate Treponema pallidum.
