Syphilis is a very dangerous infection, especially if it is left untreated for so long that it enters the latent stage. At this point, the infection will have spread through the body to the internal organs, risking serious complications to the heart and blood vessels and the brain. It can also cause serious damage to the bones and the skin. Untreated syphilis can also cause neurosyphilis, a life-threatening infection of the brain or spinal cord.
