The most common cutaneous finding of early congenital syphilis is a symmetrical, copper-red maculopapular rash [1, 7,10] Less commonly, the eruption maybe in the form of acral skin desquamation, acral vesiculobullae (pemphigus syphiliticus), mucous patches, petechiae, erythema multiformelike targetoid lesions, perioral/perinasal/perianal fissures, and condylomata lata [1,4, 6, 7,10,13].
The signs and symptoms of secondary syphilis usually develop 6 to 8 weeks after the appearance of the primary chancre.8,9 Common manifestation includes rash (75%-100%), lymphadenopathy (50-86%) and mucosal lesions (6%-30%).10 Mucosal lesions such as condylomata lata, mucous patches, and pharyngitis are highly infectious.10,11 Condylomata lata are flesh-coloured papular lesion reported in 9 to 44% cases of syphilis.9 They are located commonly in genital and anal areas but have been reported in the axillae, umbilicus, nape of neck and inner thigh.12,13 The treatment of choice for all manifestations of syphilis remains penicillin.
