Description:This patient showed manifestations of granuloma inguinale, also known as Donovanosis, which included phimosis, or an abnormal constriction of the foreskin, that had resulted in a penile pyoderma due to a secondary glanular infection.
Granuloma inguinale is a genital ulcerative disease caused by the intracellular Gram-negative bacterium Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. The causative organism is difficult to culture, and diagnosis requires visualization of dark-staining Donovan bodies on tissue crush preparation from a biopsy.
