A microbiological study was conducted on 100 men with penile ulcers. Thirty eight cases with infection due to H ducreyi, 12 cases with Treponemal infection, 3 with Herpes and 2 with Calymmatobacterium granulomatis were detected. N. gonorrhoeae was isolated from 2 cases with ulcer confluent with the urinary meatus. Mixed infections were identified in 17 cases. No cause of ulceration could be found in 26 cases. A polymicrobial flora was identified in the ulcers of all patients. A past history of penile ulcers was more common in patients who were HIV antibody positive.
