This is a skin lesion in a patient with systemically disseminated Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. Gonorrhea, caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae, if left untreated will enter the blood, thereby, spreading throughout the body. As is shown here, such fully systemic dissemination may manifest itself as skin lesions throughout the body.
