Description

Skin Findings in Disseminated Gonorrhea - The rash consists of few skin lesions only, usually on the distal extremities, and may be missed. The lesions begin as petechial macules which progress to form papules and pustules as microabscesses form around embolized bacteria. They later develop a necrotic center.  #Clinical #EM #IM #Derm #Gonorrhea #Gonococcal #Disseminated #Rash
