Hawaiian Eye and Retina 2017: Maintain high level of suspic
Syphilis is a diagnosis that is easy to miss, but in a young man presenting with uveitis, it should be a consideration, a speaker here said.

“Syphilis can present in many, many ways. You need a high level of suspicion,” Sunil K. Srivastava, MD, said at Retina 2017, where he gave an update on infectious uveitis.

Syphilis can present as anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis or posterior/panuveitis, as outer retinal whitening, as a punctate presentation or as a combination of findings, he said.
