Excerpt
Introduction Chancroid has evaded scrutiny as an important sexually transmitted disease (STD), even though an estimated 7 million cases of chancroid occur yearly (1). Chancroid is the soft chancre of Haemophilus ducreyi and is common in many of the world’s poorest regions with the weakest public health infrastructure, such as areas of Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. Where chancroid is endemic, genital ulcers are common, sometimes surpassing discharges as the most common STD syndrome (2–4). These regions also have some of the highest rates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the world and chancroid is common in all 18 countries where adult HIV prevalence surpasses 8%. This confluence of high rates of chancroid, genital ulcers, and HIV points to a cofactor that may account for a large proportion of new HIV infections acquired heterosexually in the most severely affected countries of the world.
