Description:Caption:
This image depicts a close view of a patient’s glans penis, highlighting the presence of an intraurethral chancre of the urinary meatus, or distal urethral opening, diagnosed as a primary staged syphilitic infection, caused by the bacterium, Treponema pallidum spirochete. Primary syphilitic chancres are usually firm, round, small, and painless, and develop at the spot where the T. pallidum bacteria entered the body. The chancre lasts 3 to 6 weeks, and it heals without treatment. However, if adequate treatment is not administered, the infection progresses to the secondary stage.
