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.
