The secondary syphilides may appear like any dermatological diseases, such as lichen planus, psoriasis, parapsoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, acne vulgaris, impetigo, scabies, condylomata acuminata, etc--all of this making the clinical diagnosis quite difficult.
They are represented by nodular or tubercular syphilides, which most often occur 3 to 5 years after infection.
Early congenital syphilis emerges in the first two years of life, and skin lesions are much like the secondary syphilides from the acquired syphilis: papular, papuloscuamous syphilides, deeply fissured papules of the mouth angles or the nostrils, condylomata lata (usually in the first year, hardly in the newborn period), pemphigus syphiliticus: bullae on the red infiltrated base, localized on the palms and soles, with rupture and leaving exuding areas.
