    ABSTRACT: An unusual form of secondary syphilis is presented, characterised by eruption of keratopustular syphilides which became confluent on the genitals and on other surfaces of the body. Histologically an intensive intraepidermal multilocular pustule formation was followed by equally intense but incomplete keratinisation. Abundant oozing lesions forced the patient to keep the genitals in a plastic bag which led to the formation of an uncommon, giant condylomatous surface covering the scrotum and penis.

    ABSTRACT: A 15-year-old schoolgirl presented with a generalised progressive skin rash of six months' duration, which had been previously diagnosed as psoriasis. The facial skin lesions were particularly prominent and nodular in form. Serological tests confirmed the diagnosis of secondary syphilis, which responded to treatment.
