Syphilitic uveitis is generally seen in cases of second- or third-stage syphilis; however, the clinical conditions can vary and there are few characteristic findings. In such cases, posterior lesions are generally considered to be chorioretinitis, though with a salt-and-pepper fundus are well known to indicate subsided choroiditis. In this study, we present a case in which vitreous surgery was found useful for the diagnosis and treatment of atypical syphilitic uveitis complicated with extensive ischemia from retinal vasculitis, proliferative retinopathy, and vitreous hemorrhage.
