    Three unusual cases of extragenital donovanosis are described. The presenting features were ulceration of the anterior abdominal wall, discharging sinuses of the neck, and an abscess of bone, respectively. Two cases were diagnosed recently and were the only instances of extragenital infection in a series of 47 patients with confirmed donovanosis diagnosed at a public health laboratory in Perth, Western Australia, between 1979 and the beginning of 1985. The third case, which occurred in 1977, was found in the records of a major teaching hospital.
