A 51-year-old male consulted our clinic complaining of hoarseness. The typical cutaneous sign (split papule) was observed as well as pharyngo-laryngitis. The serological test was immediately tried, and secondary syphilis was diagonsed. The patient was treated with penicillin G for 4 weeks and the symptoms disappeared. Recently syphilis has increased. Otolaryngotists should have a knowledge of this disease.
