This image depicts a close view of a female patient’s perineum, revealing the presence of a primary syphilitic chancre, which was located on the vulva, specifically on the left labium majorum. From this view, the chancre appears to exhibit a pustular, roughened surface. This syphilitic infection was caused by the bacterial spirochete, Treponema pallidum.
