Description:This image depicts a giant chancroidal lesion on a penis due to the sexually transmitted bacterium, Haemophilus ducreyi.
The first sign of infection is usually the appearance of one or more sores, or raised bumps on the genital organs. Sores are surrounded by a narrow red border. It soon becomes filled with pus, and eventually ruptures, leaving a painful open wound.
