Description:This photomicrograph of a tissue sample extracted from a lesion in the inguinal region of the female granuloma inguinale, or Donovanosis patient, depicted in PHIL 6431, shows a white blood cell (WBC) containing the pathognomonic finding of Donovan bodies, which are encapsulated, Gram-negative rods, representing the responsible bacterium Klebsiella granulomatis, formerly known as Calymmatobacterium granulomatis.
The sexually transmitted disease granuloma inguinale, or Donovanosis is caused by an organism that is difficult to culture, and diagnosis, therefore, requires visualization of dark-staining Donovan bodies on tissue crush preparation from a biopsy.
