Donovanosis in Western Australia.


We report and discuss a series of 47 consecutive patients with donovanosis that were diagnosed in a public health laboratory in Western Australia during slightly more than six years. Most came from the tropical northern parts of Western Australia, there was a preponderance of women in the series, and vulval lesions were the most common manifestation of the disease. Two men had extragenital lesions, though each was eventually found to have concomitant genital lesions.
