Erythematous scaly plaques and nodules on scalp
We describe a 45-year-old man who presented with erythematous scaly plaques and nodules on his scalp. In previously reported cases, there were only descriptions of nodules as well as tumors. However, in our case, the patient presented with plaques and nodules on his scalp that quickly resolved with treatment for syphilis. It is important to recognize and treat syphilis at an early stage.
