Description:This image depicts a primary penile syphilitic chancre surrounding the urinary meatus.
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. It has often been called "the great imitator" because so many of the signs and symptoms are indistinguishable from those of other diseases. For a light microscopic view of this bacterial spirochete, as well as a scanning electron microscopic (SEM) view, see PHIL 836 and 1971, respectively.
