  • Neurosyphilis Presenting as Intermittent Explosive Disorder and Acute Psychosis. [Case Reports]
    Cureus 2019; 11(12):e6337Saini HS, Sayre M, … Elsharkawy N
  • We present a case of a patient with tertiary syphilis, manifesting as acute psychosis, auditory hallucinations and intermittent explosive disorder with pending legal ramifications for physical violence. Our patient had been seen and treated by a psychologist with Aripiprazole for his erratic and aggressive behavior coupled with his new found psychosis over a one-year period with no avail. Prior a…
  • Giant Aortic Syphilitic Aneurysm of The Ascending Aorta with Erosion in the Chest Wall: Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Heart Surg Forum 2019; 22(5):E401-E404Stiru O, Geana RC, … Iliescu VA
  • Since the discovery of penicillin, the incidence of tertiary syphilis dramatically has decreased. However, cases of cardiovascular complications of syphilis still are present. Ascending aortic aneurysms are some of the most devastating complications. Nonetheless, syphilitic aortitis (SA) can appear and should be suspected in patients with syphilis and aortic aneurysm. We report a case of a 57-yea…
  • Gummatous penile syphilis. [Case Reports]
    IDCases 2019; 18:e00589Asselin C, Ekindi N, … Richard PO
  • Syphilitic gumma involving the penis is a rare manifestation of tertiary syphilis. Only seventeen cases have been reported in the literature. It can mimic other diagnoses such as penile carcinoma. We report a case of a 56 year old male that had been sexually abstinent for over 10 years and presenting with a 4 cm painful penile lesion with clinically palpable bilateral inguinal nodes with no prior…
  • Retrospective review of tertiary and neurosyphilis cases in Alberta, 1973-2017. [Journal Article]
    BMJ Open 2019; 9(6):e025995Landry T, Smyczek P, … Singh AE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our review of tertiary and neurosyphilis cases found that early and late neurosyphilis cases continue to occur in the context of cycling syphilis outbreaks. CV syphilis cases were extremely rare. Ongoing identification of new cases of syphilis and clinical evaluation of cases for complications continues to be important in the context of global resurgence of syphilis.

  • Syphilis is an infectious disease caused by the spirochete bacteria Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum (T. pallidum). It has been deemed the "great imitator" due to the multitude of symptoms it produces. The diagnosis becomes further muddled by periods of active disease and latency. The term neurosyphilis refers to an infection involving the central nervous system (CNS) and unlike primary, se…
  • Many Different Patterns under a Common Flag: Aortic Pathology in HIV-A Review of Case Reports in Literature. [Journal Article]
    Ann Vasc Surg 2019; 59:268-284Silvestri V, D'Ettorre G, … Mele R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Aortic pathology may occur in patients with HIV. The entanglement of different patterns of pathological involvement of the aortic wall, secondary to immune dysregulation, infectious process, or atherosclerotic damage that may co-occur in one single case, results in a very challenging management of the condition. Because of the increased life expectancy of patients and immigration from regions with both high HIV and coinfection prevalence, the incidence of aortic pathology could increase in the upcoming years, suggesting the urgent need for further studies to optimize management in these very complex cases.
  • Syphilis. [Journal Article]
    Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Jun - Jul; 37(6):398-404Arando Lasagabaster M, Otero Guerra L
  • Syphilis is an infectious disease caused by the spirochaete Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum which is transmitted by sexual contact or vertical transmission during pregnancy. The incidence of syphilis has increased in the last years, mainly among men who have sex with men. Without treatment, the disease develops into different clinical stages, being able to present cardiovascular or irreversibl…
