There are 4 types of central nervous system involvement caused by syphilis: Syphilitic meningitis, meningovascular
syphilis, parenchymal syphilis and gummatous syphilis.
syphilis decreased from 36% to 0% (data from our team, not published).
Neurosyphilis can manifest as meningovascular
syphilis, including meningitis or vasculitis, or parenchymal involvement in the form of general paresis or tabes dorsalis .
La neurosifilis se puede clasificar entre formas tempranas (sifilis asintomatica, meningitis sintomatica, sifilis ocular, otosifilis y sifilis meningovascular
) y tardias (paresia generalizada y tabes dorsal).
syphilis, symptomatic at the end of the first year of life, is characterized by hydrocephalus, cranial nerve paralysis, growth retardation, optic atrophy and seizures (2,7).
Neurosyphilis may occur early, being either asymptomatic or in the form of syphilitic meningitis, or late as meningovascular
syphilis, general paresis, or tabes dorsalis, a condition where the spinal column is affected.
Clinical features of neurobrucellosis include back pain, areflexia, paraparesis, cranial nerve involvement, myelitis, and meningovascular
involvement including strokes, neuropathy, or depression.
pallidum infection, and while classic late syphilis manifested 5-25 years later in the pre-penicillin era, early meningovascular
syphilis may develop within months to years following infection.
Late syphilis stage can be asymptomatic or it can have meningovascular
(5,6) Neurosyphilis may be asymptomatic or symptomatic, manifesting in the latter as syphilitic meningitis, meningovascular
syphilis, or parenchymatous neurosyphilis.
