1/35. granuloma inguinale (donovanosis) presenting as a neck mass in an infant.

    A case of granuloma inguinale (GI) presenting as a lateral neck mass in a 4-month-old, hiv-positive infant is described. The histological features of the mass were typical of GI, with numerous macrophages containing intracellular organisms with a "closed-safety-pin" appearance. This is a rare occurrence, and the mode of transmission of infection is discussed. An awareness of GI in infants by both clinicians and pathologists is important to prevent morbidity and allow for prompt institution of appropriate treatment.

2/35. granuloma inguinale simulating advanced pelvic cancer.

    This paper describes a case of multiple disease in an Aboriginal woman. granuloma inguinale, of unusual severity and extent, which closely simulated advanced pelvic malignant disease, was included. Some problems of the diagnosis are discussed.

3/35. Multilating granuloma inguinale.

    granuloma inguinale is an uncommon infectious granulomatous disease of the inguinale area that can insidiously engulf and mutilate tissue. The reported case of granuloma inguinale demonstrated the painless progression of the disease to destroy most penile, scrotal, and inguinal tissue and also showed the subsequent satisfactory therapeutic result with antibiotic treatment. light microscopy of plastic-embedded thin-sectioned tissue specimens allowed clear demonstration of the Donovan bodies and may be valuable in diagnosis.

4/35. Disseminated donovanosis (granuloma inguinale) with osteomyelitis of both wrists.

    Donovanosis is a sexually transmitted infection which presents with genital ulceration and inguinal lymphadenopathy. Rarely, it presents with extra-genital manifestations. We present a case of disseminated donovanosis with cervical ulceration, massive pelvic lymphadenopathy, osteomyelitis of the wrists and septic arthritis of the knees and right elbow. A 23-year-old gravida two presented with wasting, oedema, ascites, bilateral iliac lymphadenopathy, anaemia and a large ulcer of the cervix uteri. Two months later in the outpatient clinic, she was much improved but still had post-coital bleeding and a hyperaemic cervix, suggestive of persistent infection. The course of antibiotics was therefore repeated. Histopathological examination of a specimen from colposcopic biopsy of the cervix uteri revealed granuloma inguinale. She improved after several courses of antibiotics, blood transfusion, surgical debridement and aspiration of affected joints.

5/35. granuloma inguinale: three cases diagnosed in Toronto, canada.

    granuloma inguinale (GI) is a sexually transmitted disease seldom seen in the united states and canada. We are reporting three cases recently seen in Toronto, ontario, two in immigrants, and one in a native born Canadian who had an intimate relationship with a foreign visitor. The basic features of the disease are discussed.

6/35. Bilateral psoas abscess in a case of granuloma inguinale.

    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

7/35. Donovanosis (granuloma inguinale) of the oral cavity.

    A female patient suffering from donovanosis of the oral cavity without associated lesions elsewhere is reported. The importance of remembering donovanosis in the differential diagnosis of chronic granulomatous ulceration of the mouth is emphasized.

8/35. granuloma inguinale of the cervix: a carcinoma look-alike.

    granuloma inguinale of the cervix presents as a proliferative growth and may mimic carcinoma. Over a 3 year period 18 patients with cervical granuloma inguinale were detected. Nine (50%) had a clinical diagnosis of carcinoma of the cervix on admission, five of whom had extensive investigations to exclude a malignancy. In communities where these two conditions are commonly seen it is recommended that granuloma inguinale be considered in young women with granulomatous lesions of the cervix, so as to avoid extensive and financially costly investigations, and unnecessary psychological stress for patients.

9/35. diagnosis of an unusual abdominal presentation of granuloma inguinale by fine needle aspiration cytology.

    A 63-year-old Hispanic man from peru who recently had immigrated to the united states presented with progressive weakness, weight loss, recurrent abdominal pain and passing bright red blood per rectum. Rectal carcinoma was suspected. Biopsies of two lesions in the sigmoid colon showed granuloma inguinale (donovanosis). A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen revealed a large presacral mass. A radiographically guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) of the presacral mass showed findings characteristic of granuloma inguinale. FNA thus proved to be a useful adjuvant in the diagnosis of an unusual case of granuloma inguinale (donovanosis) presenting with a presacral mass that had the radiologic characteristics of a malignant tumor.

10/35. Perianal abscess and sinuses caused by granuloma inguinale. Case report.

    An atypical case of the venereal disease granuloma inguinale, which is very rare in scandinavia, is reported. The patient presented with recurrent perianal abscess and sinuses, and the diagnosis was not made until histologic examination of an extirpated subcutaneous nodule showed cells containing the pathognomonic Donovan bodies.
