CORTI, M; PALMIERI, O  and  MARONNA, E. Malignant secondary syphilis, rupioid clinical form, in a female HIV - seropositive: Report of a case and literature review. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2014, vol.95, n.3, pp.22-26. ISSN 1851-300X.

Malignant syphilis is a rare form of secondary syphilis strongly associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV). A rare clinical form of presentation include multiple, large and rupia-like ulcerative lesions associated with systemic clinical manifestations. Here we describe an HIV-seropositive female who developed clinical cutaneous and systemic manifestations of malignant rupioid syphilis, with a good response to treatment with benzatin penicillin and we performed a review of the literature.

Keywords : Malignant syphilis; Rupioid lesions; HIV; Treponema pallidum.
