Tertiary syphilis is just the final phase in some untreated cases.
"In about one-third of untreated cases, the tertiary stage is
characterized by progressive destructive mucocutaneous,
musculoskeletal, or parenchymal lesions; aortitis; or symptomatic
central nervous system (CNS) disease."
Harrison's Internal Med.
Randolph Churchill died from it years after being drugged and put in
bed with a prostitute as a university prank.
