We present a case of an HIV-negative individual who presented with worsening central and peripheral neurological symptoms and signs. Clinical, serological, histopathological, and radiological features were in keeping with concurrent cerebral and spinal cord syphilitic gummata, a tertiary manifestation of syphilis. Clinical improvement occurred after treatment of neurosyphilis.
