Extragenital granuloma inguinale mimicking a soft-tissue neoplasm: a case report and review of the literature.

Author information

Department of Pathology, University of Florida, Jacksonville.


Granuloma inguinale has been reported to mimic squamous cell carcinoma, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. We describe a rare case of extragenital granuloma inguinale that mimicked a soft tissue neoplasm in an 18-year-old pregnant woman who presented with cervical and labial ulcers. An elective cesarean section was performed, at which time a retroperitoneal mass that involved the right ureter was found. At frozen section, the mass had a xanthogranulomatous appearance consistent with a soft-tissue neoplasm. Special stains of the permanent sections revealed the pathognomic features of granuloma inguinale.
