  • Non-healing genital herpes mimicking donovanosis in an immunocompetent man. [Case Reports]
    Int J STD AIDS. 2016 Jan; 27(1):72-4.Gupta V, Khute P, … Gupta S
  • Although atypical presentations of herpetic infection in immunocompetent individuals are common, they very rarely have the extensive, chronic and verrucous appearances seen in the immunocompromised host. We report a case of genital herpes manifesting as painless chronic non-healing genital ulcers with exuberant granulation tissue in an immunocompetent man. Owing to this morphology, the ulcers wer…
  • Genital donovanosis with malignant transformation: An interesting case report. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Sex Transm Dis AIDS. 2014 Jul-Dec; 35(2):135-7.Sri KN, Chowdary AS, Reddy BS
  • Donovanosis is a chronic indolent sexually transmitted granulomatous ulceration of genito-inguinal region, caused by Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. It became uncommon due to indiscriminate use of broad spectrum antibiotics. In recent years, much interest is being focused on this condition because genital ulcers facilitate HIV infection. We report an interesting episode of genital donovanosis co…

  • A 46-year-old man complained of ulcerovegetative lesions in the anogenital region, which he had noted one month prior to presentation. The patient had a history of travel to African countries. Therefore, the ulcerovegetative lesions of the patient were suspected to be granuloma inguinale (GI). Calymmatobacterium granulomatis was not observed in the direct examination of scrapings collected from t…
  • On the evolution of the sexually transmitted bacteria Haemophilus ducreyi and Klebsiella granulomatis. [Review]
    Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2011 Aug; 1230:E1-E10.Lagergård T, Bölin I, Lindholm L
  • Haemophilus ducreyi and Klebsiella (Calymmatobacterium) granulomatis are sexually transmitted bacteria that cause characteristic, persisting ulceration on external genitals called chancroid and granuloma inguinale, respectively. Those ulcers are endemic in developing countries or exist, as does granuloma inguinale, only in some geographic "hot spots."H. ducreyi is placed in the genus Haemophilus …

  • Granuloma inguinale: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Dermatol Online J. 2006 Dec 10; 12(7):14.Rashid RM, Janjua SA, Khachemoune A
  • Granuloma inguinale is common in certain regions of the world, however, it is rarely reported in the United States. It is the result of infection by Calymmatobacterium granulomati, although current literature proposes to re-classify this organism as Klebsiella granulomati. Here we report a case of granuloma inguinale, review the literature, and discuss historical context, treatment options, and d…
  • Genital elephantiasis and sexually transmitted infections - revisited. [Review]
    Int J STD AIDS. 2006 Mar; 17(3):157-65; quiz 166.Gupta S, Ajith C, … Mete U
  • Genital elephantiasis is an important medical problem in the tropics. It usually affects young and productive age group, and is associated with physical disability and extreme mental anguish. The majority of cases are due to filariasis; however, a small but significant proportion of patients develop genital elephantiasis due to bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs), mainly lymphogranul…
  • Bilateral psoas abscess in a case of granuloma inguinale. [Case Reports]
    West Indian Med J. 2005 Oct; 54(5):343-5.West W, Fletcher H, … Vaughan K
  • The authors present a case of disseminated granuloma inguinale with bilateral psoas abscesses. Infection with calymmatobacterium granulomatis is usually localized to the genital organs but rarely may be disseminated. A search of the literature revealed that only two cases of psoas abscesses due to calymmatobacterium granulomatis were previously reported
  • [Up to date in sexually transmitted infections: epidemiology, diagnostic approaches and treatments]. [Review]

  • In the last years, there have been important advances in sexually transmitted infections such as genome sequencing of Treponema pallidum, Chlamydia trachomatis or Mycoplasma genitalium; the new taxonomic position of Calymmatobacterium granulomatis; commercial diagnostic systems based on nucleic acid amplification; the emergence of quinolone resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae; new therapeutic app…
  • Donovanosis. [Review]
    Sex Transm Infect. 2002 Dec; 78(6):452-7.O'Farrell N
  • Donovanosis, a chronic cause of genital ulceration, has recently been the subject of renewed interest after a long period of relative obscurity. The causative organism, Calymmatobacterium granulomatis, has been cultured for the first time in many years and a polymerase chain reaction diagnostic using a colorimetric detection system has been developed. Phylogenetic analysis confirms close similari…
  • Donovanosis: an update. [Review]
    Int J STD AIDS. 2001 Jul; 12(7):423-7.O'Farrell N
  • Donovanosis has been ignored for many years until recently. The condition still has a limited geographical distribution. A significant epidemic of donovanosis has been identified in KwaZulu/Natal, South Africa where it may be a risk factor for acquiring HIV in men. After a gap of more than 30 years, the organism was cultured by researchers in Durban, South Africa and Darwin, Australia. Polymerase…
  • Transepithelial elimination of cutaneous vulval granuloma inguinale. [Journal Article]
    J Cutan Pathol. 2000 Nov; 27(10):493-9.Ramdial PK, Kharsany AB, … Chetty R
  • CONCLUSIONS: The inflammatory infiltrate at the epitheliomesenchymal interface, pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, intra-epidermal accumulation and disintegration of neutrophils and histiocytes, and the associated release of lytic enzymes, play important contributory roles in TEE of GI. TEE of infectious agents is a poorly recognised mechanism of spread of infectious diseases and represents a public health hazard. In cutaneous vulval GI, TEE is highlighted as a hitherto unrecognised, potential method of spread of Calymmatobacterium granulomatis.
  • A colorimetric detection system for Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. [Journal Article]
    Sex Transm Infect. 2000 Apr; 76(2):134-6.Carter JS, Kemp DJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: The successful development of a colorimetric detection system for C granulomatis incorporating two levels of specificity enables the molecular diagnosis of this condition to be undertaken by routine diagnostic laboratories. This should have an important role in the Australian government's campaign to eradicate donovanosis by 2003 though the test still needs to undergo trials and be validated using a larger number of samples from geographically diverse parts of the world in order to ascertain the generalisability of the methodology.
  • Phylogenetic analysis of Calymmatobacterium granulomatis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences. [Journal Article]
    J Med Microbiol. 1999 Sep; 48(9):841-847.Kharsany ABM, Hoosen AA, … Sturm AW
  • Calymmatobacterium granulomatis is the aetiological agent of granuloma inguinale - a chronic granulomatous genital infection - and is morphologically similar to members of the genus Klebsiella. This study determined the 16S rRNA gene sequence of C. granulomatis and the taxonomic position of the organism in relation to the genus Klebsiella. Genomic DNA was extracted from C. granulomatis-infected m…
