A case of chronic granuloma inguinale in a Bantu male is reported. Secondary extragenital ulcers of the scapular region, face, interior of the mouth and the epiglottis occurred in this case, following two to four years after the primary genital lesion. It is suggested that the oral ulcers may have been due to auto-inoculation. A tendency to remission following non-specific treatment with Penicillin and Sulphapyridine was observed in the earlier stages.
