    Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in a Case of Acute Syphilitic Posterior Placoid Chorioretinitis

    Ocular syphilis can involve almost any structure of the eye, but posterior uveitis and panuveitis are the most common [ 1 ]. Additional manifestations may include anterior uveitis, optic neuropathy, retinal vasculitis, interstitial keratitis, and serous and exudative retinal detachment [ 2 ], [ 3 ].
