AB  - We present a 36-year-old HIV-positive man with a sixweek history of spreading,
      ulcerative, and necroticcutaneous lesions. Laboratory and
      histopathologicexamination revealed syphilis. This case of malignantsyphilis,
      also known as lues maligna, is an uncommonvariant of this sexually transmitted
      infection. This casehighlights the importance of including malignantsyphilis in
      the differential diagnosis of patientspresenting with a disseminated ulcerative
