Acute syphilitic blindness in AIDS.


To our knowledge, bilateral syphilitic optic neuritis has not been reported in conjunction with AIDS. We document a case of a bisexual man with AIDS whose vision deteriorated overnight from 20/20 in both eyes to total bilateral blindness as a result of syphilitic retrobulbar neuritis. The implications and management of leutic disease in immunocompromised individuals are discussed.
