A clinico-eoidemiological study on 189 cases of donovanosis seen during the year 197 1 1973 is presented from the coastline climate of Pondicherry. A high prevalence rate of 6. 1 % has been met with. The disease could be convincingly demonstrated in 50% of the sexual partners that could be examined and was shown in 15 couples i.e. in both the husband and wife. This shows beyond doubt the venereal origin of donovanosis. Streptomycin is the treatment of choice with cure rate of 90.8% in the treated cases. In resistant cases or those who could not tolerate streptomycin, achromycin was found quite effective.
