    Abstract

    Primary endometrial and endocervical granuloma inguinale (donovanosis) was diagnosed in an 18-year-old Melanesian woman in Papua New Guinea. Granulomatous involvement of the parametrium, salpinges, ovaries, and ureters was associated with ureteric obstruction and bilateral hydronephrosis. Granuloma inguinale of the cervix, labia majora, and anus developed after diagnostic endometrial curettage. Treatment with tetracycline and later chloramphenicol had to be stopped because of poor patient compliance. Hysterectomy was performed, after which the patient made a good recovery. This appears to be the first case of primary endometrial and endocervical granuloma inguinale to be reported.
