Case report of three consecutive lues maligna infections in an HIV-infected patient.
Int J STD AIDS. 2017 04; 28(5):523-525.IJ

Abstract

Lues maligna is a rare presentation of an infection with Treponema pallidum. Here we report three lues maligna infections with severe dermatological manifestations in a single HIV-1 infected individual. Despite the start of highly active antiretroviral therapy and a substantial increase in CD4 cell count after the first episode, he developed consecutive episodes. We assume a specific immunological predisposition to react to T. pallidum in this patient.
