Abstract

BEZERRA, Sarita Maria de Fátima Martins de Carvalho; JARDIM, Marcio Martins Lobo  and  SILVA, Valdir Bandeira da. Granuloma inguinale (Donovanosis). An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.3, pp. 585-586. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000300028.

The authors present images of two of the most common clinical forms of granuloma inguinale (donovanosis) in males and females. Donovanosis is considered a sexually transmitted disease that is endemic in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Two microscopic images are also shown, one of a direct smear (the presence of Donovan bodies within large mononuclear cells identified using Giemsa stain) and the other of typical histological findings (rod-shaped Donovan bodies within a mononuclear histiocyte)

Keywords : Communicable diseases; Genital diseases, female; Genital diseases, male; Sexually transmitted diseases; Sexually transmitted diseases, bacterial.
