A differential diagnosis revealed that the rash on the bottom of this individual’s feet, known as keratoderma blennorrhagica, was due to Reiter's syndrome, not a syphilitic infection as was initially suspected.
Reiter’s syndrome, sometimes referred to as “seronegative spondyloarthropathy” or “reactive arthritis”, consists of predominately three symptoms: arthritis, conjunctivitis, and urinary tract infections, or urethritis. More recently, doctors have recognized a fourth major feature, ulcerations of the skin and mouth. (See PHIL #5794)
