Gummatous and Cardiovascular Syphilis

As long as no evidence of CNS involvement exists, antibiotic therapy for gummatous and cardiovascular syphilis is identical to that for tertiary syphilis.

Neurosyphilis

As an effective treatment for neurosyphilis, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorses two regimens of penicillin. Alternatively, ceftriaxone may also be prescribed.18

The regimens of choice are aqueous penicillin G 3 to 4 million units administered IV every 4 hours for 10 to 14 days OR procaine penicillin G 2.4 million units admin istered intramuscularly once daily, plus probenecid 500 mg orally four times daily, both for 10 to 14 days.
