AbstractHaemophilus ducreyi, the microbial agent of chancroid, used to be probably the most common cause of genital ulcers in many parts of the world. However, the pattern of genital ulcer disease (GUD) is changing, and recent studies have found that, while GUD attributable to herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2) infection is increasing,haemophilus ducreyi is decreasing in many areas. This guideline addresses the following aspects of the disease: aetiology and epidemiology; clinical features; diagnosis; management; auditable outcome measures.
