This photomicrograph reveals Donovan bodies in a tissue sample used to diagnose granuloma inguinale. Diagnosis of granuloma inguinale is based on the appearance of encapsulated, Klebsiella granulomatis bacilli, formerly known as Calymmatobacterium granulomatis, referred to as Donovan bodies. These are safety pin-shaped microorganisms that appear inside infected tissue cells under a microscope.
