Syphilis is a sexually-transmitted disease caused by the spirochete bacterium Treponema pallidum. Central nervous system involvement can occur in every stage of the disease. It is classified into: acute syphilitic meningitis, meningovascular syphilis, and parenchymatous neurosyphilis. Acute basilar syphilitic meningitis is characterized primarily by the presence of cranial nerve involvement. As cranial nerve enhancement may be seen in a broad range of diseases, it can be the only clinical feature of neurosyphilis.

Keywords: Neurosyphilis, cranial neuropathy, meningitis
