Yaws
Yaws (also known as frambesia tropica, thymosis, polypapilloma tropicum, parangi, bouba, frambösie, and pian) is a tropical infection of the skinbones and joints caused by the spirochete bacterium Treponema pallidum pertenue. Symptoms of the disease begins with a round, hard swelling of the skin that may be two to five centimeters in size. The center may break open and form an ulcer. This initial skin lesion typically heals after three to six months. After weeks to years joint pains, bone pains, fatigue and new skin lesions may appear. The skin of the palms of the hands and bottom of the feet may become thick and breaks open. The bones including that of the nose may become misshapen. After great than five years large areas of skin death may occur with subsequent scarring.
