Description:This photomicrograph reveals histopathology exhibited by a tissue sample extracted from an established lesion diagnosed as granuloma inguinale, also known as Donovanosis, showing epithelial hyperplasia and an accompanying cellular infiltrate consisting of histiocytes and plasma cells. This tissue sample was extracted from the patient depicted in PHIL 6440.
The sexually transmitted disease granuloma inguinale 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.
