Neurosyphilis refers to infection of the central nervous system in a patient with syphilis and can occur at any stage. In the era of modern antibiotics the majority of neurosyphilis cases have been reported in HIV-infected patients. Meningitis is the most common neurological presentation in early syphilis. Tertiary syphilis symptoms are exclusively neurosyphilis, though neurosyphilis may occur at any stage of infection. To diagnose neurosyphilis, patients undergo a lumbar puncture to obtain cerebrospinal fluid CSF for analysis. The CSF is tested for antibodies for specific Treponema pallidum antigens. Historically, the disease was studied under the Tuskegee study , a notable example of unethical human experimentation.
