This image depicts a close medial view of a patient’s right ankle highlighting the presence of a number of coin shaped lesions, which after careful examination, proved to be due to a case of secondary syphilis, caused by the bacterial spirochete, Treponema pallidum. Note the inflamed, scaly appearance of these lesions, some draining what appeared to be serosanguineous fluid.
