Author(s): Snigdha Kumari, Avir Sarkar and Anju Singh
Abstract: Granuloma inguinale (donovanosis) is a very rare slowly progressive sexually transmitted disease. With the introduction of antibiotics, its incidence has declined dramatically. Very few cases are now reported from countries like New Guinea, KwaZulu-Natal, southern parts of Africa, Brazil and the West Indies. Southern states of India have witnessed few cases of donovanosis in the past few decades. We hereby report a very rare case of granuloma inguinale diagnosed and successfully managed during third trimester of pregnancy and puerperium. However, caesarean delivery had to be done due to presence of ulcero-granulomatous lesion at the vulva with risk of bleeding during vaginal delivery.
