[Skin manifestations of syphilis maligna in HIV infection. Clinical observations in 3 cases].Hautarzt. 1988 Jul; 39(7):463-6.H
Three cases of acquired immune deficiency with unusual dermatological symptoms of early syphilis are reported. All three patients were promiscuous homosexual men with confirmed HIV infections and signs of an impaired immune status. One patient was apparently healthy, one had the AIDS-related complex and one was suspected of having LAS. Although none showed serious symptoms as regards their general well-being, the syphilitic skin manifestations corresponded to earlier reports of malignant syphilis.
