Abstract

The patient was a 38-year-old female complaining of soreness of the oral mucosa. When she came to our out-patient clinic she had erythematous papular eruption on the limbs for 2 months. On the lips, tongue and fauces were well-defined, slightly raised lesions with a grayish white or erosive surface. Skin and oral lesions were suggestive of syphilis. The labial lesion histologically showed nonspecific inflammation and serologic examination confirmed syphilis.
The patient was referred to the department of dermatology for further examination and treatment of persistent skin lesions. After the administration of Bicillin-V2®, the skin lesions disappeared for one month.
