Caption: Syphilitic brain lesions in an AIDS patient, coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The abscess (red) is in the occipital lobe at lower left. Syphilis is a disease caused by infection with Trepomena pallidum bacteria. The third (tertiary) stage of the disease, which can affect the central nervous system (CNS), leads to brain damage, causing personality changes and hyperactive reflexes. AIDS is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which attacks the immune system. Simultaneous infections are therefore more common and progress faster.
