[Donovanosis. Apropos of a new case of granuloma inguinale in France].Ann Med Interne (Paris). 1986; 137(8):656-9.AM
We report a new case of granuloma inguinale in France. A 47 years old Turkish man living in France for eight years had an ulcerovegetative lesion on the corona sulcus and inner aspect of the prepuce for three months. Donovanosis was established by granulation time smears and Giemsa's stain showing Donovan bodies inside large mononuclear cells. Complete resolution occurred after treatment with ampicillin for three weeks and later doxycycline for a month. Granuloma inguinale is rare in France and must not be forgotten. Epidemiologic data, clinical manifestations and therapeutic indications are reviewed.
