Abstract

TO THE EDITOR: Ocular syphilis is a re-emerging infectious eye disease caused by Treponema pallidum that most often involves the posterior segment. Acute syphilitic posterior placoid chorioretinopathy (ASPPC) is a characteristic manifestation of this disease, but the majority of patients present with nonspecific forms of posterior uveitis or panuveitis, making the diagnosis of syphilis frequently challenging.
