Purpose: on the presented clinical case, to show the difficulties of diagnosing late cardiovascular syphilis. The difficulties of diagnosing late cardiovascular syphilis are largely determined by the extreme variability of the clinical manifestations of the disease and the lack of awareness of dermatovenereologists and other doctors (primarily therapists, cardiologists and cardiac surgeons). A feature of this case is the "cardiac" mask of the disease debut.
