Summaries for Chancroid

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Chancroid is a bacterial infection that is spread through sexual contact. It is caused by a type of bacteria called Haemophilus ducreyi. Chancroid is characterized by a small bump on the genital which becomes a painful ulcer. Men may have just one ulcer, but women often develop four or more. About half of the people who are infected with a chancroid will develop enlarged inguinal lymph nodes, the nodes located in the fold between the leg and the lower abdomen. In some cases, the nodes will break through the skin and cause draining abscesses. The swollen lymph nodes and abscesses are often called buboes. Chancroid infections can be treated with antibiotics, including azithromycin, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, and erythromycin. Large lymph node swellings need to be drained, either with a needle or local surgery.

MalaCards based summary : Chancroid, also known as ulcus molle, skin, is related to lymphogranuloma venereum and granuloma inguinale. An important gene associated with Chancroid is CD36 (CD36 Molecule), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Microglia Activation During Neuroinflammation: Overview. The drugs Penicillin G and Azithromycin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lymph node and testes.

Disease Ontology : 12 A primary bacterial infectious disease that is a sexually transmitted infection located in skin of the genitals, has material basis in Haemophilus ducreyi, which is transmitted by sexual contact. The infection has symptom painful and soft ulcers.
