Abstract

A patient presented with septal and palatal perforations imposes a diagnostic challenge because various potential causes need to be established. Therefore, elucidating the cause of the septal perforation requires obtaining a thorough history. In addition, it is very important to perform necessary investigations for the patients to determine and fix the underlying disease which cause these complaints. We report a case of patient presented with palatal and septal perforations which later was confirmed to have syphilis.
