This image depicts an anterior view of a child’s face, which exhibited numerous perioral papillomas, which developed as a result of the treponemal disease known as yaws, and in this case, specifically early yaws. The first sign of yaws is the appearance of a painless papule, which grows into a papilloma. These large, early granulomatous lesions are highly infectious, and display a yellow, crusty surface.
