The possibility of Haemophilus ducreyi
causing yaws-like ulcers is of epidemiological and clinical significance and needs to be further studied.

The genital ulcers caused by Haemophilus ducreyi
are a significant problem in Africa and other developing parts of the world where HTV is epidemic.
Chancroid is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by infection with Haemophilus ducreyi
and is characterized by genital ulceration.
The global epidemiology of Haemophilus ducreyi
infections is poorly documented because of difficulties in confirming microbiological diagnoses.
Dark field microscopy for Trepanema pallidum, swab-cultures for Haemophilus ducreyi
and other aerobic bacteria and fungi gave negative results.

Reports suggest that Haemophilus ducreyi
, the causative organism of chancroid, a sexually transmitted infection, may be associated with nonsexual transmission of nongenital ulcers of the skin in persons from the Pacific region (4,5).
A More complete STI testing panel may have the following composition: Chlamydia trachomatis; Neisseria gonorrhea; TV; Treponema pallidum (syphilis); Herpes simplex 1; Herpes simplex LI; Mycoplasma hominis; Mycoplasma genitalium; Ureaplasma urealyticum; and Haemophilus ducreyi
A bacteriologic test for chancroid is not necessary, but the clinician who first saw the patient asked that we conduct the test for chancroid--a culture for the Haemophilus ducreyi
