Donovanosis, or Granuloma Inguinale, is an infection caused by the Klebsiella granulomatis bacillus that affects the skin and mucous membranes of the genital regions, the groin and the anus causing ulcers and destroying the infected skin. It is often associated with other sexually transmitted diseases, particularly Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

Beginning with an introduction to the disease, the following chapters provide step by step discussion on the etiopathogenesis, immunology and epidemiological features.
The final sections describe diagnosis techniques and treatment options, with complete chapters dedicated to HIV and other associated diseases.
This useful reference is well-illustrated with images and tables, and a colour atlas at the end of the book enhances the text.
