Abstract

With the increase in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, the incidence of syphilis also increased worldwide presenting with diverse clinical manifestations. We experienced a case of symptomatic early neurosyphilis manifesting as optic neuritis and trochlear nerve palsy with typical skin lesions of secondary syphilis in an HIV-Infected patient. Intravenous penicillin and oral steroid were administered for 2 weeks. Skin lesions improved after a week, and ocular lesions resolved completely after eight weeks of treatment.
