Three patients with acute syphilis have been seen in this clinic during the past two years who exhibited the picture of nephrosis and whose course justified a diagnosis of acute syphilitic nephrosis. Since there are few reports of similar cases in the literature, one is led to conclude that this is a rare complication of early syphilis. In 1935 Hermann and Marr1 reviewed the literature on clinical syphilitic nephropathies and devised a classification of these conditions. They found nine cases which were considered characteristic of acute syphilitic nephrosis. Since Hermann and Marr's contribution, there have been no other reported cases
