Abstract

We believe this to be the first report of coexisting polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-confirmed primary genital and ocular syphilis in a patient with penicillin allergy treated with doxycycline. The case examines the use of nonpenicillin and corticosteroid treatment of ocular syphilis and highlights the risk of eye involvement early in the disease process.
