Early oral presentation of lues maligna in a patient with HIV infection. A case report.
Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol. 1993 Jun; 75(6):728-32.OS

Abstract

We present a case of a patient infected with the human immunodeficiency virus who developed syphilis manifested by atypical early oral and skin ulcerations. The profound immune defects associated with human immunodeficiency virus may lead to an altered clinical presentation and a more aggressive course in patients infected with Treponema pallidum. The unusual clinical manifestations observed in this case emphasize the importance of considering secondary syphilis in the differential diagnosis of any inflammatory mucosal and skin disorder in patients with the human immunodeficiency virus.
