Description:This female presented with granuloma inguinale exhibiting bilateral inguinal node involvement due to Klebsiella granulomatis. See PHIL 18889, for a photomicrographic view of tissue extracted from this patient's inguinal lesion revealing the presence of Donovan bodies, confirming the diagnosis of granuloma inguinale, or Donovanosis.
Granuloma inguinale, like syphilis, is also a sexually transmitted disease. It is a slowly progressive ulcerative condition of the skin and lymphatics of the genital, and perianal area caused by infection with Klebsiella granulomatis, formerly known as Calymmatobacterium granulomatis.
