Abstract

BELDA JUNIOR, Walter; VELHO, Paulo Eduardo Neves Ferreira; ARNONE, Marcelo  and  ROMITTI, Ricardo. Donovanosis treated with thiamphenicol. Braz J Infect Dis [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.4, pp.388-389. ISSN 1413-8670.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-86702007000400002.

Ten patients with donovanosis were treated with thiamphenicol for two weeks. In eight of them, included two HIV infected patients, lesions healed. The safety profile of thiamphenicol makes it a useful and cost-effective agent in the management of donovanosis. Randomized controlled trials should be conducted with these treatment options.

Keywords : Azithromycin; granuloma Inguinale; sexually transmitted disease; therapy; thiamphenicol.
