[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A 37-year-old man with a mass of the proglossis was prescribed ointment and gargle for stomatitis at another hospital. He consulted our hospital because of growth of the mass. Intraoral examination revealed a well defined and marked indurate mass of the proglossis accompanied by an ulcer. The histopathological diagnosis was granulation tissue. Serological examination revealed that STS was positive, and antibodies for Treponema pallidum were positive. We diagnosed primary syphilis of the proglossis because he had an opportunity for infection from the oral cavity 4 weeks previously. Following our request, the patient was treated by a local physician.
