This case presents a 42-year-old homosexual man with weight loss, urticaria type rash, tinnitus/phonophobia, dizziness and blurred vision and scotoma on the left side. Visual acuity was affected and a left papillitis was present. The patient was tested positive for antibodies against Treponoma pallidum. This case illustrates that symptoms of the syphilis disease can come from different organ systems and cross medical specialties. We encourage clinicians to more readily think of syphilis whenever there is a sexual active patient with complaints from different parts of the body.
