Description:This hematoxylin-eosin-stained (H&E) photomicrograph revealed some of the cytopathology associated with an early-staged granuloma inguinale lesion. See PHIL 16203, for a view of this specimen under a higher magnification.
The sexually transmitted disease granuloma inguinale, or Donovanosis is caused by 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.
