This image depicts a left anterior-oblique view of a patient’s penis highlighting the presence of a number of ulcerative lesions on the penile shaft and corona, which was found to be a case of Donovanosis, or granuloma inguinale, caused by the Gram-negative bacterium, Klebsiella granulomatis, formerly Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. A sexually transmitted disease, granuloma inguinale is a slowly progressive, ulcerative condition of the skin and lymphatics of the genital, and perianal area. A definitive diagnosis is achieved when a tissue smear tests positive for the presence of Donovan bodies.
