This patient presented with an extragenital syphilitic chancre of the left index finger.
The chancre is usually firm, round, small, and painless, appearing at the spot where syphilis entered the body, and lasts 3-6 weeks, healing on its own. If adequate treatment is not administered, the infection progresses to the secondary stage.
