Return of the Great Mimicker

HIV and syphilis are sexually transmitted infections that can present with significant ocular manifestations. We present the case of a 54-year-old male with untreated HIV who presented with ocular syphilis manifesting with both the rare presentation of retinal detachment, as well as panuveitis. The goal of this case report is to provide a diagnostic framework for approaching new visual changes in HIV patients. In addition, we will provide an overview of the risk factors, manifestations, and treatment recommended for ocular syphilis.
