This image depicts a close anterior view of a female’s inguinopubic region revealing the presence of bilateral inguinal buboes, or swollen lymph nodes, which had ruptured through the overlying skin. This condition was the result of a sexually transmitted disease known as granuloma inguinale, or Donovanosis, caused by the Gram-negative bacterium, Klebsiella granulomatis formerly Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. Donovanosis is a slowly progressive ulcerative condition of the skin and lymphatics of the genital, and perianal area.
