Case Report

The 2012 syphilis & HIV combo


SS Kumar and S Lee 李啟焱


We report a case of a homosexual male patient with an unusual presentation of syphilis and HIV co-infection. The initial skin problem on the scalp appeared banal and seborrhoeic. However, this soon became multifocal and general symptoms developed as well. The patient's personal history signalled the possibilities of sexually transmitted diseases. Subsequent investigations unfolded a modern dermatological tale of sex in a city.

我們報告一例男同性戀病患的梅毒及愛滋病病毒雙重感染的不尋常表現。其最先在頭皮出現平常的脂溢性皮炎;但不久即出現其他病灶及全身的症狀。病患的個人陳述引起性傳染病的懷疑,而 繼後的檢查亦揭示了一個現代都會中的皮膚科性事典故。
