PHIL Image 6809
 
ID#:6809
Description:This photograph shows a close-up view of keratotic lesions on the palms of this patient’s hands due to a secondary syphilitic infection.

Syphilis is a complex 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.
