Figure 1: Granulomatous ulceration over the glans

Mentions: On cutaneous examination linear ulcers with well-defined edges were present on either side of the groin extending on to the natal cleft. The borders were irregular with granulomatous base and serosanguineous discharge. Lesion was tender on palpation. Inguinal lymphadenopathy was absent. A solitary ulcer with well-circumscribed border was present over the glans of the penis [Figures 1 and 2]. The floor of the ulcer was covered with slough and pus discharge was noted. Provisional diagnosis of Donovanosis was made.
