Lues maligna in early HIV infection case report and review of the literature.
Sex Transm Dis. 2009 Aug; 36(8):512-4.ST

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Lues maligna (also known as malignant syphilis or ulceronodular syphilis) is a rare dermatologic manifestation of syphilis more commonly seen in patients with HIV infection. The classic lesion of lues maligna is an oval, papulopustular skin lesion with well demarcated borders sometimes covered with a lamellar crust, but myriad clinical presentations of this disease also exist.

GOALS

To report a presentation of lues maligna in a patient with probable early HIV infection, emphasizing the diagnostic criteria and clinical manifestations of lues maligna.

STUDY DESIGN

Case report of lues maligna in a patient with probable early HIV infection.

CONCLUSIONS

As syphilis becomes more common in many developed regions, it is important to recognize even atypical presentations of this clinical entity, especially among individuals who have unrecognized or early HIV infection.
