Abstract
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease which incidence increased over the last 10 years in Switzerland. The clinical and neurocognitive manifestations observed in case of symptomatic neurosyphilis can be very heterogeneous and can mimic neurocognitive disorders of other origins. This article discusses the diagnostic and management pitfalls in an older patient whose diagnosis of neurosyphilis was initially suspected during a home visit.
