Abstract

There are diverse skin manifestations of both leprosy and syphilis. These diseases can appear similar to many other dermatologic conditions as well as to systemic diseases with dermatologic signs. Nodular syphilis is an uncommon type of secondary syphilis. We present here a person from a leprosy-endemic area with diffuse nodular skin lesions of secondary syphilis who was initially suspected of having lepromatous leprosy.
