Heading


ID#:15432
Description:This patient showed manifestations of granuloma inguinale, also known as Donovanosis, involving swelling and subcutaneous granulomas of the inguinal lymph nodes, bilaterally.
Granuloma inguinale is a genital ulcerative disease caused by the Gram-negative bacterium, Klebsiella granulomatis, formerly known as Calymmatobacterium granulomatis, and even earlier Donovania granulomatis. The causative organism is difficult to culture, and diagnosis requires visualization of dark-staining Donovan bodies on tissue crush preparation from a biopsy.
