    Twenty patients with neurosyphilis are reviewed. They were gathered over a 15-year period during which the overall incidence was 0.18 per 100,000, though fewer cases appeared in the latter half of the study. The commonest presentation was with mental symptoms and classical forms of neurosyphilis were rarely seen. No patient presented with epilepsy. There is a case for the more selective use of serological testing.
