Syphilitic gummas in Tertiary syphilis

Tertiary syphilitic gummas may mimic basal cell carcinoma. The gummatous tumors are benign

and, if properly treated, in most cases will heal and the patient will recover.



Without treatment, an infected person still has syphilis even though there are no signs or

symptoms. It remains in the body, and it may begin to damage the internal organs, including the

brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones, and joints.
